Stripes. Is there a correct way to wear stripes? Perhaps. Like a double edged sword, stripes can either make or break your look. Typically, you don’t wear a full set of stripes, but I recently discovered that there’s actually a way to wear a full on stripes outfit without looking like a jail cell. Now, if you’re considering one, I suggest to get them in darker colour. The reason behind it is that it will make for one cohesive look that’s not only pleasing to the eyes, but also forgiving towards the shape of your body. Like this outfit, for example, I kept everything to a minimal, so that I didn’t look like a sloppy joe. To add some textures and contrast, I wore a faux suede jacket with faux fur lining over my block stripes sweater. Finishing off this look, I wore my favourite pair of GUESS boots.
