I have never been a fan of stripes. I try to avoid such a pattern as much as possible mainly because of how I initially thought that the alternating [colored] horizontal lines presents an unflattering look, which is definitely not the case. I only came across this perception due to an article that I read stating that stripes might emphasize wide hips or make a woman seem more squat or fatter. And now, I’m more than glad to say that it’s definitely a total bust — a myth. Anyone can totally rock stripes! It’s all about how you wear it, and how you feel in it: with confidence.
I was able to overcome this distaste for stripes the moment my significant other bought me a beautiful striped romper (which I wore to our first anniversary date) from his vacation in Philippines.
My outfit, a shoulderless striped romper from GTW Fab, was paired with my Forever 21 Classic Round Shades, a leather handbag I purchased from Walmart, and my black pointed-tip Aldo flats.
There’s definitely a lot of summery/touristy vibe with this outfit, so it was definitely fun to wear it. Who knew stripes could make such a fun statement? I would love to know what you guys think, so definitely let me know how you rock stripes!
