While most of you would cringe at the word, horizontal stripes are all over and I love them! What else am I obsessed with? Bold prints! The thing about stripes and prints is, you can wear them on a dress, sweater, headband, and my favorite: a t-shirt! What is even better, if you wear them right, they can actually be great for illusions, bigger on the top, smaller on the bottom, and everything in between. But, how do you rock these looks without going over the top or even worse… a little wider?
First, TRY IT ON! This happens to be my least favorite thing about shopping but it needs to be done. Why buy a shirt that is just going to end up making you look binger then you are?
Opt for wider stripes, rather than skinny ones when it comes to dresses and shirts. Same goes for bold prints.
If you are wearing a “loud” shirt, go for jewelry and accessories that accent, not distract.
Here are some of my favorite stripes and prints!
I actually recently purchased this item from American Eagle. Its a crop top so it doesn't make you look wider on the bottom! Bonus for the fright colors!
This top is from Francesca's. I love the wide stripes and bold color.
This top from forever 21 seems a tad summery, but the dark colors and the contrast make it more winter. Not to mention it has a great bold print! Wear with bangles and jeans!
Of corse I could add pictures of stripes and prints all day, but you won't really know what looks good on your body until you try it! So get out there and rock the horizontal stripes and bold prints! Leave a comment with what you think about the stripes! We love hearing from you!
