One of the very first things I learned when I first became interested in fashion, many years ago, was that horizontal strips tends to make one look fat.
Like most women I wish to look slimmer than I really am. (Slimmer than whom, you may ask? Slimmer than oneself, the neighbor, the 21 year old model staring back at you from the fashion ad ? the fashion victim which I became?) so, in the past, purchasing an item of clothing in which strips featured was a total “no no”.
Come 2012 and the designers and trend-setters decided that horizontal stripes are not only o.k but the “in thing “! and one of my dress rule was heads to the dustbin!
