Horizontal Stripes

I love stripes. Love them. And yes, these are horizontal stripes. I’m tired of people saying that horizontal stripes make you look wider and larger. I would have to completely disagree. I think it really has to do with the size of the stripes. I’ve tried on horizontal striped dresses that do not look flattering. Why? Because the stripes were various widths, and the widest stripes hit right at my hips, thus making them look wider. So, that dress stayed at the store. Obviously, I don’t want to add clothes to my wardrobe that make me look wider! Who would? It’s all about learning what looks good on you.

I love this dress from Banana Republic. This zipper details are what sucked me in – besides of course it being stripes 🙂
