Striped Right

February 19, 2017








How many times have you heard that plus size women shouldn’t wear stripes? It’s usually one of the first fashion “dont’s” that arise when it comes to dressing a plus size frame.  The theory is that stripes make you look wider, especially horizontal stripes because of the nature of the design. We all know that this is a myth and that plus size women can wear stripes just like anyone else. What I always say is that there really aren’t any fashion “dont’s”, there are only opportunities to make those trends or styles work for you.

So I decided to be living proof of turning a “don’t” into a “do” by rocking this multicolored striped skirt from Rachel Roy. I love the mixture of Winter and Spring colors in the skirt that will come in handy for the upcoming Spring season. Since the stripes are the highlight of this look, I paired it with a simple off the shoulder top and my fave nude pumps creating a cute, chic look (if I do say so myself).

So to all of the people out there that put limits on our style, its time to fall in line!
