I must admit, there is one type of outfit that I keep going back to recently is striped outfit. You've probably seen me wearing and blogging about it many times here yet I still find it difficult to cover all different styles and pairings for this simple and classic fashion staple. 

People often put a blame on horizontal stripes for making the wearers look bigger than their actual size  but that is not true. I've ever seen a lady whose size is 3 times bigger than mine yet still looked so elegant, chic and beautiful in her striped outfit. Perhaps, it still points down to "How you wear your outfit" at the end of the day. 

Last week, I attempted to go all the way with stripes on stripes outfit to go to work and to see how it turned out. I could't complain much as even with the #breton stripes covered me from head to toe,  I DID NOT find my body grow any extra inches horizontally. With the red blazer layered on top, I was very comfortable in my own skin and ready to run many meetings in a day. 

In conclusion, there is nothing scary about a stripe. This, in fact, is a classic pattern that is so flattering  and fun to wear. If you love striped outfits but don't know what are the tips and tricks? click HERE to read more.
