as many of you guys know i am more than obsessed with stripes… it’s really bad. i see them, in any form, and try to convince myself its necessary to get them. it’s a habit i’m breaking, but a habit nonetheless. anyways, the majority of bloggers i follow tend to rock stripes in so many different ways. the upside about this is that i can dream up different outfits with pieces i already have thanks to these blogs. the downside is that i may see them wearing something that i could define as life-changing (me being dramatic) and favorite it, watch it obsessively, hoping it goes on sale, ultimately falling into an endless cycle.
I love the way horizontal stripes look on other people, but for some reason I’m just so scared to buy them for myself. I think What Not to Wear ingrained in me that horizontal stripes made you look wider, but I don’t think that’s always true.
i used to always hear that horizontal stripes make you look bigger, but i don’t necessarily agree! it really depends on who you wear them, and if you’re wearing a striped shirt that isn’t incredibly tight/unflattering, i think you’re fine!
