Stripe Support

Stripes: love ‘em or hate ‘em, they need your support. Don’t let their bad rap get you down; instead, embrace this upbeat look to lift your mood:

No Drama Mama:  Bright colors are big now, but caution wearing multiple.  If you do, stick to a 1-piece type (dress or romper) and wear heels to balance the impact.  Keep everything else neutral, so the drama stays at bay.

Family Feud:  they love us, despite our differences.  And the one agreeable piece no one can argue about is the boat neck T-shirt. Go black and white for a classic feel, and pair with white jeans and metallic sandals.  No intervention required!

Positive Thinking: Get a sponsor and use this safety net: 1.) Horizontal widens, vertical lengthens, and chevron flatters almost anyone. 2.) Very wide or very thin stripes have a cool, modern feel, and medium stripes look classic.  3.) Extras are theraputic: espadrilles, a handbag or a snood.

Now go get your stripe on--you’ve earned it!
