Get Striped

Summertime is the season for leisurely boat rides, mid-morning brunches and relaxed afternoon strolls. It’s the season to be casual and breezy. So how do we fashionistas stay casual and stylish this summer? With stripes, of course! The perfect stripe can give your look nautical sophistication or cool simplicity. You gotta get striped!

Don’t be afraid of stripes! It’s all about picking the right stripe for your body type. If you find that you carry more weight around your tummy, opt for vertical stripes or striped accessories. If you have a big ol’ booty but more narrow shoulders, try a top with thick stripes to make your bottom half look smaller. If you have a thin frame, try thick, horizontal stripes in the areas you want to “boost.” If you have a fuller frame, wear diagonal stripes to create an hour-glass look.
