I am always one to shy away from horizontal striped dresses because they naturally make me look wide around the hips. Regardless of your body type, stripes will give the illusion of added width, but that doest mean you should steer clear of them. If you are petite and slim, you can wear any stripes you like, big or small. But, If you are on the curvy side or looking to camouflage something steer away from large stripes, they only make you look wider. A great on option for us is small stripes, or as I like to call them, busy stripes. Small stripes will give you a streamlined silhouette, hide imperfections, and they won’t chop your body up. For this look here, I added a vest that hits right at my hipbone where I start to widen in order to hide the expansion of the stripes. Keeping your eyes in a straight line all the way down. You can definitely wear a long duster with this too if you are looking to hide the booty.
