Add Stripes to Your Closet This Spring

Published January 16, 2015 by dressshoppingguide

Stripes are everywhere! The changeable stripes are always the best source of inspiration for many fashion designers. Stripes are making a major statement on nearly every single spring runway. Add stripes to your wardrobe this spring! Here are some guides on wearing striped dresses.

The danger with wearing stripes is when they’re horizontal, and can give the illusion of adding a few pounds onto your shape. However, it doesn’t mean that stripes are off limits for fuller-figured fashionistas. The best way to avoid this is to wear diagonal or vertical stripes, unless you are very thin. Also, you should steer clear of horizontal-striped tops in stretchy fabrics. If you’re going for a chunkier, wider horizontal stripe, make sure that you’re exposing some skin. Striped dresses in v-neck, off-the-shoulder or tank styles would be better for fuller-figured people.

A scarf, handbag or headband is a great way to sport the striped trend, especially if you’re not quite ready to embrace a striped dress. Do not always stick to classic black and white stripes. Look for an unexpected color combination, like bright green and yellow or orange and pink, for an added punch. If you want preppy feel, add a belt to your striped dress. To maximize fashion mileage, look for a sleeveless striped dress that’s perfect for a warm afternoon; then top it off with a cardigan or blazer in a complementary color for work or a committee meeting.
