So Frenchy, So Chic

Stripes. What more can we say? They’re effortless, easy to style with anything, and give a little extra umph to a minimalist outfit. Stripes are also a great way to enhance your figure via optical illusion. Vertical stripes help to elongate and slim down the appearance of the body. Vertical striped trousers or skirts work well if you want to add a bit of length to your legs. If you want to play it safe, try to avoid styling stripes with stripes – if you’re wearing a striped bottom, then style it with a solid coloured top and vice versa. Additionally, try a two piece striped set, but if you’re really daring, you can try styling different stripe patterns with each other. Who knows. You could make it work 😉

Horizonatal stripes work well to enhance any curves. The thicker the width of the stripe the more it enhances and the thinner the width, the slimmer it gives an appearance. You can style a simple striped dress or playsuit with a messy bun and slides for an easy, laidback look or team it up with some red lipstick and dark eyeshadow for some French rock star chic. Reow 😉
