Black and white horizontal stripes are such a classic and chic pattern to have in your wardrobe for all seasons. You can layer a stripe shirt with a blazer and scarf during the winter months or wear it casually with a statement necklace and shorts during the summer months. But for the longest time, women were afraid to wear stripes because they tend to make you look broader.This may or may not be true (we got for not!), but not all stripes are created equal.
Find the stripe that works for your body type. For example, if you're tall and/or plus size go for a bigger and wider stripe and if you're petite go for smaller and narrow stripes. But rules are meant to be broken anyway right, especially when it comes to fashion. Have fun and experiment and see what works for you.
