The Secret to wearing Horizontal Stripes.

Loving my new Thursday Friday Chanel canvas bag and Dave! 

Putting Dave to work. 

Dress: French Connection  (On Sale now $50 from $168) Sandals: Aldo Bag: Thursday Friday

With Stripes being huge this season I could not help myself but to purchase one of fashion's biggest no-no, Horizontal Stripes. Cringe, I know. Horizontal stripes are known to make us look wider, especially in our most problem areas, our tummy and tush. But have no fear, I've found a solution to the death of horizontal stripes. Drum roll please.....  fake an hour glass! If you are like me, and live in a sea of stripes, here is what may help. When purchasing horizontal stripes, try to purchase a dress with side panels.  Be sure the side panels are strategically placed with the widest part of the panels at your natural waistline to help cinch the waist.  This will trick the eyes into believing the illusion of a slimmer waistline. Also try to have your shoulders wider than you waist and hips that will also help the entirety of your body appear smaller in relation.  Would you think twice now about wearing horizontal stripes?

Have a wonderful Monday. Say Hi to Dave!
