Stripes have always been present in fashion and have a long life a head. Every year stripes make it back into the IT trend of the spring or summer season, either in a vintage inspiration or a modern bold approach.
They are classic because they’re always relevant, and it’s just a matter of the size and the color that varies from time to time. This Spring, these geometric lines are spotted everywhere from Dolce&Gabbana to Balmain, Dior and Moschino.
Although fashion counselors have claimed that plus-sized people should avoid horizontal stripes for it makes them look larger in size, it is in fact a mistake. The long lines make a shorter person look taller, thus slimming the body out. Vertical lines on the other hand can make your tummy look fuller than it actually is, so know what you’re aiming for. If you want to wear this trend and look thinner, choose a darker top with lighter lines, and another option is to wear a very loose top which will hide all the imperfections.
