This summer I have decided to change some things up in my closet! Instead of wearing solid colored tops/dresses I stocked up on prints. Wearing white has been my go to style for a very long time and let me tell you it is hard to switch from what you really love to trying something new!
Every time I walk into a store my eyes automatically lean towards white dresses, tops etc. so it has been hard to move away from that "safe zone" and try to explore the prints side of the store. The biggest challenge I have come across is finding the prints that work with the skin tone and hair color. Ladies, I am sure you can relate that we all have tried on those print dresses or tops that we hated but yet in the next fitting room there was another person trying on the same thing and it looked beautiful on her! I have found out that vertical stripes work on my body the best. Why? See below.
- Vertical stripes make your torso look longer
- Creates a vision of you being a few inches taller
- Classic print that can be worn from day to night
- Trendy all year along, whether it is paired up with leather shorts, pants or a skirt
