Nautical stripes are eye catching and quick way look chic. However, stripe is a tricky one to pull because it can either make you slimmer, taller or wider and fatter. Carrying a stripe handbag or wearing a striped shoe shouldnâ€™t pose a problem.
Wearing horizontal stripes can make you look wider. If you have a small top and narrow shoulders they look great.
Vertical stripes can give you height and a slim appearance if you are short. Vertical stripes on a tall thin person can make them look taller. Assess your figure type before you choose something with stripes.
However, you can do a combo of red and white or blue and red and still turn out great.
