Hi, friends! Today I would like to share with you some information from recent webinar with italian stylists. The theme was “Fashion optical illusions”. It’s all about prints as you understod. I will talk just about stripes in this post, but in the one of further posts will discuss other prints too. Well, STRIPES. The main fashion points about them are :
– The optical trick about horizontal lines when used in clothing: The longer an eye travels up or down a body before it is interrupted by a horizontal line, the taller and leaner you will look.
– If you need add more visual volume in some part of the body, use horazontal wide stripes . The wider the stripe, the bolder the statement.
– Diagonal lines are incredibly slimming and, like vertical lines, no matter where you place them on your body they will slim that area. Diagonal stripes attract attention to top points and they are especially recommended if you want to hide some imperfections in waist area or stomach area they will do this
– Accessorize the stripes. If you like striped tops and want to have a different look when wearing them, then either add a matching vest, a tie or a colorful scarf that will refresh the traditional black and white. Neutral colors are best for a medium look.
Below you can see my examples in illustrations for these points. And also I created some sets – how we can use stripes in trendy looks, see and enjoy! 😉
Thank you for your attention!
