How to Wear Horizontal Stripes07:02:00
I had bought this little dress a couple of years ago and while I haven't gotten much wear out of it, I still thought it was a great piece to show the versatility of a nautical striped dress. I know horizonal is supposed to add more pounds instantly to your physique but its still something you can wear. Well since I'm skinny I sometimes pick such styles intentionally to look a little bulky (yes, you envy me, I've heard that before but I don't exactly have it easy either). I think this dress can be used for work as well as play. Style it with a satchel and heels for work, or wear it with a sling and flats for a nice evening by the beach.
If you're not exactly on the skinny side and want to wear horizontal stripes, I suggest going for thinner stripes. The material should be flowy so that it doesn't at volume to your look. I personally went for a very structured dress but replace this with a flowy kaftan in stripes and you've got your beach look sorted, no matter how un-skinny you are. Believe me, its all about choosing the right cut and fabric for your body!
