The stripe trend has always appeared every season but thanks to two of my favourite designers Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors who both have created a collection based on bold stripes, it is set to become one of the strongest pattern trends for 2013.
Whether it be horizontal, vertical, thin, thick, black, white or colour, stripes make a graphic statement day or night. It is best to stick with simple, modish silhouettes and monochrome or primary colour combinations.Since vertical stripes enhance the appearance of height, they are the best type of stripes petite women should wear. Chevron or other asymmetrical stripes can also be flattering. Stylists normally recommend that we skip
wide horizontal stripes, but if you choose the right style, it can compliment your look just like the top I am wearing from Beginning Boutique.
