What I Want Now: White and Navy Stripes

There’s just something about them: the clean lines, the nod to nautical nostalgia, the crisp color combo. Stripes are loved and adored by so many, and I’m certainly one of them. I think every girl at one time or another questions the stripe — Does it make me look wide? Can I pull it off? But a good stripe story is similar to that of Goldie Locks. We all must find a stripe that isn’t too big, too little, too bright, too bland… but just right.

Just right, for me, is a about a one-inch width, navy and white in color, and has a classic but flirty attitude.

If you haven’t found your stripe yet… Consider striped accessories first. Because a striped scarf doesn’t make your arse look fat. Yes, it looks good on you. And no, you don’t look like a sailor. Well, maybe a tad…. Actually, you look just right.
