Get the look:
A main staple in any closet should be a great striped shirt, pant or even coat.
Whether you are talking about pinstripes on a man’s suit or wide navy stripes on an A-lined skirt, stripes constantly show up in fashion. Stripes, however, don’t stop with style. Wearing stripes has the function to allow you to create a more streamlined look.
For instance, vertical stripes are known for making the torso look longer and leaner. Meanwhile, horizontal stripes are to be avoided unless you want to appear wider, which is avoided in most circumstances.
Another thing to consider when sporting stripes is that you should steer clear of wearing multiple pieces featuring stripes in one outfit. Mixing multiple stripe patterns can make an outfit appear too busy, but mixing stripes with other prints, such as floral, is a great way to update your look for a more hip style.1
