How to Choose a Stripe Dress

It’s no secret I love a good stripe dress.They are timeless, and contrary to popular belief, stripes are flattering on everyone. You just need to find which stripe works best for your body type. A lot of this is figured out through trial and error. Over time, you will discover if you prefer a thick stripe, a thin stripe, horizontal or vertical. Also, colors can play a difference on how stripes will look on you.My best advice for you is to choose something that makes you feel comfortable and makes you feel like you! Below are some of my picks based on body-type. Click on the images to find the perfect stripe dress for you! Use this information how ever you want, but, remember, what makes you feel total confidence in yourself and your image will be the BEST choice for you!

If you are petite...

and want to elongate your frame, look for long, vertical stripes

// <![CDATA[ !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = '//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1467842937351?cb=' + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === 'object'){ if(doc.readyState === 'complete'){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, 'script', 'shopsensewidget-script'); // ]]>

If you are slender…

and want to add some curves to your body, opt for a thicker stripe that draws attention to the areas of your body you want to accentuate

// <![CDATA[ !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = '//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1467842937351?cb=' + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === 'object'){ if(doc.readyState === 'complete'){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, 'script', 'shopsensewidget-script'); // ]]>

 

If you are pear-shaped...

go for horizontal or stripes on the top half of your frame and thin vertical stripes on the bottom half of your frame

// <![CDATA[ !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = '//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1467842937351?cb=' + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === 'object'){ if(doc.readyState === 'complete'){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, 'script', 'shopsensewidget-script'); // ]]>

 

If you are hourglass…

either vertical or horizontal stripes will look great on you, just be sure to stick to an all horizontal stripe dress, or all vertical stripe dress; don’t mix the two

// <![CDATA[ !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = '//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1467842937351?cb=' + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === 'object'){ if(doc.readyState === 'complete'){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, 'script', 'shopsensewidget-script'); // ]]>

If you are apple-shaped…

choose narrow, dark-colored vertical stripes to help elongate your frame

// <![CDATA[ !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = '//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1467863948059?cb=' + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === 'object'){ if(doc.readyState === 'complete'){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, 'script', 'shopsensewidget-script'); // ]]>
