How to wear stripes?

Do you know the basic rules of wearing stipes? It's so easy but so true!!

Use horizontal stripes if you are skinny and slim, or if you want to create a wider
upper part of your body, this works amazing if you have big hips, if you wear a striped top
you will focus the attention in your chest and belly not in your bottom part.

It also works if you have a small back, you can create the illusion that you are wider.

The contrary is for people who is not so skinny you must use vertical stripes,
because horizontal stripes will make you look longer and not so wide.

If you think you are overweight please don't use stripes because your body
will have more volume.


¿Sabían las reglas básicas para usar un estampado de líneas? ¡Es muy simple y muy cierto!

Usa líneas horizontales si eres alta y delgada, o simplemente si quieres que llame mas
la atención la parte superior de tu cuerpo, esto funciona por ejemplo cuando tienes
las caderas anchas, si usas una blusa de rayas la gente se fijará en tu pecho y abdomen
en vez de tus caderas.

También es bueno usar líneas horizontales si tienes una espalda pequeña y así
te puedes ver más ancha.

Por el contrario las personas no muy delgadas es preferible que usen líneas
horizontales para que su silueta se vea más larga y no más ancha.

Si estas con sobre peso te recomiendo mantenerte alejada de las rayas porque
te hará verte todavía más grande.

Here is an example of me wearing stipes, I'm kind of skinny and my arms are thin so is not a big
problem for me wearing stripes, it actually helps me to create a wider back, mine is
so narrow!

You can wear a striped top with accessories than can make your outfit less boring, maybe a belt
or a necklace. Also you can wear vests like me to don't make it too obvious.


Aquí les pongo un ejemplo de la vida real con mis fotos: soy algo flaca y mis brazos
también son muy delgados así que usar líneas eta bien para mi tipo de cuerpo,
de hecho me ayuda bastante porque tengo una espalda muy chiquita y crea la
ilusión de que la tengo más grande.

Para no hacer tu look muy aburrido con líneas usa también accesorios llamativos
como collares o cinturones, puedes también usar un chaleco para que las líneas no sean muy 
obvias.

  9. love this post!
    i don't really like stripes that much but i had a vertical striped blouse a few years ago (before it was sold on monki! hahaha)

    And i have to add: vertical stripes are for both, skinnies and not so skinnies :)) horizontal ones should be avoided by the last group!

  24. This is a great posts! I love stripes so much! I'm not super skinny or anything, and I have big boobs but I still wear vertical stripes. Wearing them with a blazer or something, they don't have the widening effect...
