You don’t have to read between the lines to see that gals our age love stripes. They’re classic, sporty, and youthful. So here are 5 ways to look Age-Amazing™ in Stripes.
1. Wear Stripes Strategically
We all have parts of our body that are thinner or heavier, so the trick with stripes is to know what kind of stripes to wear and how to position them. Wear vertical stripes over the parts you want to look thinner. Horizontal stripes will emphasize larger areas.
For example, if you are big busted, avoid wearing horizontal stripes across your bust. Wide hips? Why widen them by wearing a striped skirt? On the other hand, if you have a straight-up and own boyish figure, you are beautiful to horizontal stripes to widen you out.
2. Buy Striped Clothing in Modern Shapes and Colors
One way to look updated in Spring stripes is to choose new styles and cut of clothing with stripes. This pretty wrap top with the gorgeous bow tie front is new and trending. Also, the colors of the stripes are different too- lavender, green, navy, and white. It’s a fresh, feminine way to do stripes.
3. Match Stripes to Body Size and Shape
If you are tall or big-boned, you can wear bigger, bolder stripes. However, petite gals need to wear thin stripes, which are closer together to look balanced.
4. Try Stripes + a Jacket
If you are on the heavy side and worry about looking heavier in horizontal stripes, then layer your outfit so you have just a hint of stripes showing through. For example, you will look slim and modern if you wear a striped top underneath a cute nautical utility jacket instead of wearing the striped tee on its own.
5. Choose the Right Stripes for Your Personality
The bold candy stripes we are seeing are so much fun but will draw more attention to you than traditional colored stripes, so keep that in mind. Also, if you are wearing bright stripes in one place, it’s best to go neutral elsewhere.
For example, wear a candy-colored striped top with white pants. Also, contrasting stripes like black and white ( high contrast) make a bolder statement than a striped top in alternating black and gray ( lower contrast).
