Your Guide to Wearing Stripes for Summer-2013

Monday, 15 April 2013 / , , , , , , , , , , , , ,



How to wear stripes - Different Stripes for different body types. yes that's where we are heading here..
Needless to explain, that stripes are a biggg trend, and they are gleaming everywhere . So when One of my blog readers was a bit Flummoxed by the fact that she looks overweight and Unflattering in them, I decided to address a post, specifically for all of us who might feel the same,and what better way than to do a OOTD keeping the trend in mind.
No its not Oxymoron,You can really rock the stripes for the Summer of 2013 if we just understand a few things. 
  1. First things first, there are a very few of us who are blessed with a perfect body out there(some things are not in our hands,so as of now we can blame our genes for that). But what is not  impossible is that we can create an illusion of a perfect body ! Yes and Wearing stripes makes it relatively easier to achieve !!
  2. Vertical Stripes- For those who are heavier on the sides:-They draw the eyes up and down,rather than a side scan. Result-Look Lean and Long !!  Go ahead and pair them with a solid color .
  3. Horizontal Stripes- Accentuate the petite part of your body with Horizontal Stripes.U guessed it right ! They can be Widening ! Wider the Horizon, more focused would be the Eyes ,and make a seemingly narrow part of our body ,broader !!
  4. Chevron Stripes: Someone did a fun twist on the basic stripes,and made them Zig-Zag,and Boom-We learnt a new term, CHEVRON -Ideal for fuller figure women,as they call attention to the center line of your body.
  5. You can even mix stripes choosing a vertical stripe on the half you want to downplay and a horizontal stripe on the half of your body you want to draw more attention to ! It really depends on what you have in your closet.
Phew ! One long post !! Now What ? Go and start digging your closets and discover some Stripes ,but before you do that have a look at How I wore Chevron Stripes !

  48. Thanks for the tips on stripes.Though I have seen curvy women donning horizontal stripes too beautifully. I wonder how they overcome the widening effect. And as for your look, I guess accessories really make a look. Love those heels and the ring is to die for, truly.

  49. Hi Surbhi,
    I just went through your profile. You are a homemaker and a mother?! gosh i thought you were a college student! You look so young. Lovely dressing and a lovely face of course. I wanted to suggest you a site for men's fashion breakbounce. They offer vibrant colors to suit the summers. You could suggest it to somebody close to you. the stuff is good. :)
