The stripes are a HUGE trend right now. This trend is not new, one of Coco Chanel’s famous creation was the sailor stripe shirt, (one of my top 5 https://classnfab.wordpress.com/2009/10/27/top-five-chanel-timeless-creations/). Sense then the stripes have been in style, and I believe is a save to say that they will stay with us for many seasons to come.
There are a few tricks you have to know first before wearing strips.
*First of and most important, horizontal stripe can give the illusion of looking thicker. Try thiner stripes in areas where you are wider such as hips or bust.* If you are pear shape, wear the stripes on your upper body. Stripes are fabulous but they also make the illusion of making things look thicker than they are.
