Wear your stripes right
When paired with the right pieces, stripes can really enhance your figure. While horizontal stripes add curves, vertical stripes add to the slimming effect.
When stripes are large, they add a graphic, casual vibe to the top like the one Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is wearing. Keep accessories to a minimum as it will make the top look busy.
Priyanka Chopra carries her stripes well by pairing it with a black blazer.
One of the basic rules of wearing stripes is not to overdo it. Wearing a printed stole over a striped dress is a strict no-no.
Stripes add an optical illusion to whatever you are wearing. If you want to add volume to your body, add draped stripes as it will make the area look larger.
A little stripe goes a long way when worn as an accent piece like Monica Dogra's jacket
Variegated stripes can add some spunk to your dress. Just make sure that there is some consistency with the colors and thickness of the stripes.
