Have you heard that if you wear stripes, especially horizontal ones, that you will look bigger? Well, I have heard that, and because of that I always stayed clear of stripes. However, I have since read that maybe that thinking was incorrect. Stripes can actually make you look thinner. That is a good thing, since stripes are one of the new trends for 2016.There are different types of stripes. Horizontal, vertical, thin, and thick. Stay away from vertical stripes on your top half. They will show even the tiniest of a tummy. I know I don’t want any extra bulges. Pinstripes, however look very classic and business like. Thick stripes tend to be the most dramatic, and flashy. Navy and white, black and brown, or black and white, are classic combinations that always look great together. Wearing a neutral pant or skirt will highlight the top. If you choose to wear a blazer or jacket, like I have, it can help to define the waist.My Kelly green jacket is a few years old. I like that it can add a pop-of-color and energize a boring outfit. Here is a similar one, and here is a short sleeve version that I really like. The wide strip sweater is by Old Navy . I have had it for a long time, also. Remember, I am a clothes hoarder. Hahaha Here is a similar v-neck version that comes in a variety of colors.OMG! I really need to take pictures of my necklaces without them being on my body. What woman over 50, who has not had cosmetic surgery, wants a close-up of their waddle and wrinkles? Just adjust your view on your computer to screen to only show the necklaces. The long necklace is the Atlas 3-Row Convertible necklace from Chloe & Isabel. And the shorter bling initial necklace is by Monarch Inspirations. I picked it up in Atlanta at a tea shop, but Amazon carries a lot of their items. I couldn’t find the initial necklace, but here is a blessed bling necklace.I am wearing Earl Grey stretch skinny jeans that I bought from T J Maxx. Here is a similar pair. I am wearing my OTK boots from Tommy Hilfiger. You would have thought since it was gong to snow that I would have worn my Hunter rain boots like I did Here and Here. You would have been incorrect! That would have been way to smart for me. I instead chose to wear a nice pair of leather boots that I could ruin. Lol! We only had about an inch of snow on the ground by the time I came home, so the boots were safe. HahahaI haven’t mentioned the small red purse. It is a Coach purse that I can’t even begin to guess its age. I don’t usually carry small purses, mine have to carry enough
crap necessities, to weigh down a small pack mule. But, I liked the color of the purse and I usually carry it for small periods of time every year. I’m sure I bought mine at a Coach outlet, because I refuse to pay full price. Those suckers are expensive!
I look forward to seeing lots of stripes in the stores this Spring. I try to keep my stripes on the top half of my body, and away from the hip area. I need all the help I can get in the boobie department. You will endowed ladies might have to re-think that look. Everything comes at a cost. Lol! Keep warm gurls, and I hope to see you tomorrow:)
