Do you think that horizontal stripes add inches to the waistline?
Stripes often get a bad rap
Stripes are fun and flattering on practically any item in your wardrobe,
from dresses and tops to shoes and skirts.

in all honesty, the difference is minuscule and can be negated by the size of the stripe.
So do we cast out wearing stripes altogether?
"People should probably not worry too much about wearing vertical or horizontal stripes,"
say fashion experts.
“They don’t make much of a difference to perceived height and weight.”
Our fashion expert agrees.
“Rules are meant to be broken, especially fashion rules,”
