One of the hottest fashion trends for spring 2012 is stripes.
But wait! Stripes make me look fat!
No, not necessarily. There are good stripes, and there are bad stripes. The key is knowing what works for you.
Try a top with stripes only in the middle. Believe it or not, stripes like this actually give the appearance of a narrower midsection.
Or try a striped cardi. The block of solid in the middle helps alleviate the widening effect that stripes can have.
Not ready to fully commit? Allow the stripes to peek out beneath a solid piece. This is a great way to dabble with the trend without going all out.
Or try a striped skirt! Especially if you are built larger on top than on the bottom, a skirt like this can help balance out your proportions.
Are you down with the stripes trend? What’s your favorite way to wear stripes?
