Stripes, practical tips to wear them with style: vertical or horizontal?

Let's start with a very simple advice, which has to do with the optical effects of the patterns: the vertical ones will tend to lengthen and thin the figure, especially if on a dark background. The horizontal ones, on the other hand, will tend to widen it, especially if on a light background. So wear them strategically on the part of your body that you want to highlight (since they are a fantasy, they will tend to attract the eye) and use them strategically!

Here, too, it works a bit like vertical or horizontal lines: if they are wide, they will tend to widen, the thinner they are, the thinner the figure will seem. Try also choosing colors with this strategy: light colors tend to dilate optically, while dark ones shrink. So if you want to "reduce" your figure, a thin light line on a dark background will do!

Do not overdo the colors: pick up one of the colors of the lines, or broken, with denim or with a neutral color (white or black). If you want, if the lines are only in two colors, you can add a third, perhaps in the accessories.

And finally: the draperies and the construction of the dress

As I said before, use stripes in a clever way: sometimes it is the very construction of the dress, combined with its fantasy, that helps you to enhance yourself. The draperies in strategic points, if accompanied by the lines in the right direction, will be perfect for minimizing the hips or optically creating a waistline by breaking the figure in a harmonious and feminine way.
