Every blogs/vlogs/website on classic wardrobe must haves will include a stripe top. Being put off by the fact that there are countless fashion guides warning petite women against wearing horizontal stripes, I can’t help but to feel how chic women look every time I see someone wearing it. For my Greece trip recently, I took the plunge and got myself one. In fact, it was the only piece of clothing I specially bought for the summer holidays. And I have NO regrets! There is something about the stripes that will make a woman look and feel classy. And the stripes did not cut off my petite frame when proportion and fit is given careful consideration when putting the whole outfit together. There are great with casual pants, dressy pants, jeans, shorts and skirt. Now I am intending to get one v-neck t-shirt and a 3/4 sleeve top. Stripe all the way!
1. To all my petite ladies, do not be afraid to wear horizontal stripes. Just make sure the stripes are not too big, the fit is just right and get 3/4 sleeve if you may because it flatters small frame the most.
2. Invest in a good quality striped top as they are a classic piece. Besides that, easily worn out materials will not do justice to your overall look.
