We asked: Would you wear Horizontal Stripes?
You said: Yes to Horizontal Stripes, with 75% of the vote.
Style tip? Horizontal Stripes get a bad reputation for figure flattery, since they can make you look wider than you actually are. But it’s all in how you wear your stripes. Small, narrow stripes are pretty easy to wear by themselves. And you can counteract the widening effect of wide horizontal stripes by wearing them in moderation–such as under a jacket. Plus, you can take advantage of the widening effect by wearing them on a part of your body that you’d like to widen. If you have narrow shoulders, for instance, you can wear horizontal stripes at the shoulderline to visually balance them out.
