My Plus Size Fashion Style: Stripes on Stripes

I’m guilty of not loving stripes for a very long time. I remember hearing at a very young age the stripes made you look bigger, from then on, I steered away from stripes but within the last few years I’ve learned to LOVE STRIPES!!!

Now this is just my opinion on stripes. I feel that when it comes to fashion, it does take some ingenuity, but strips can give the curvy woman life. Especially when cut on an angle because it brings the waist in giving you that hourglass shape. That’s exactly what this cardigan does, straight on, it gives you that illusion of a smaller waist and when viewing from the side you see that it still had lots of room.

Horizontal stripes

Curvy women look great wearing horizontal stripes. They are often seen as making the curvy woman look larger, but what I’ve found is that I love the mix of thick and thin stripes together, as this helps to reduce the effect of looking larger. Horizontal stripes look great with suits and outfits with jackets. Using a jacket to break up the stripes, stops the eye, eliminating the widening effect.

Vertical Stripes

Vertical stripes can be thicker because they don’t give the same larger effect. I love to infuse color with vertical strips and once again a solid colored jacket or blazer would help to break up the stripes.

If stripes are too much, try simple touches such as scarves, handbags and  accessories.

I love how this look that I’m wearing came together. I was running late and knew that comfortability was the keyword of the day. So I grabbed these jeans which are so comfortable and the cardigan had gone untouched in my closet for a very long time, so I decided to pull it out. I added a Hi-Lo tee from, scarf from Target and Dolce Vita flats. It was a quickly pulled together look, but I loved how the strips played off each other. The look was colorful, yet subtle.
