Western Workin’ Stripes

1 year ago Fashion & Beauty0

Stripes carry a plethora of fashion meanings — criminal, rebellious, liberating.

And both horizontal and vertical stripes also can flatter or flatten your overall outfit based on body shape.

My Original Russ Sport Co. multicolored vest is a kicky piece to wear because it incorporates the two and still compliments my physique.

But just in case you’re not too sure how to rock stripes, remember these rule of thumbs: Vertical stripes make you appear taller; horizontal stripes make you appear wider; thick stripes can become too much for my country-curvy girls; and thin stripes are practical for petites.
