Prints and patterns can make a lot of difference to your silhouette. And undoubtedly among them, stripes are the most important and difficult to style. While horizontal stripes may make you look bulkier than you actually are, vertical stripes hide all those extra pounds and give an illusion of a slimmer you. This classic vintage pattern is something we all have in our wardrobe, but styling it is not everybody’s game. Let’s explore amazing outfit ideas for your everyday striped pieces.
1. Maxi dress with high block heels
With maxi dresses, choose block heels as they always work well with a flowy silhouette and add a pop of color by carrying a quirky sling bag.
