Striped Street Style

Now, that's what I call 'caught on the street'! A colorful tee with boring black jeans does the work for a super casual look. A pair of canvas shoes/sneakers or some basic pumps would complete my look on other days. I choose to go with these metallic golden shoes to add some rock touch to my causal outfit. Accessorized with metallic cuff and a funky shopping bag. 



Stripes are a great way to jazz up even the drabbest clothes in your closet. In addition to this, stripes give an optical illusion. Wearing right kind of stripes according to you body type can accentuate curves, make you look tall or broaden your slender body parts. It can also do the exact opposite thing. So, it doesn't hurt to know what kind of stripes can flatter your body type.

There's one basic rule 'horizontal stripes widen while vertical stripes lengthen'. Wear Vertical stripes to look taller and horizontal stripes to look broad. Similarly for a slimming effect, wear a blouse or bottoms with vertical stripes. In contrast, if you tend to look too skinny in some clothes then you might want to go for horizontal stripes which can make you look fuller.

Courtesy Tip:

Don’t wear multiple stripped clothes unless you want to look like a zebra.



Keep your spirits high and calories low
