The Allure of Stripes

Wednesday, October 28, 2015 7:20 AM

Good Wednesday Morning!  What is it about stripes?  Often times, like a lot of people I get stuck on a certain look.  Whether is be plaid, stripes, black denim, long dusters (you get the point), I find my closet is full of very similar items. Recently it has been stripes, black and white to be specific.  If there is a stripe in a 30 mile radius of me, it needs to be mine, even if it looks like 20 other tops or dresses I may have...and most likely it does.  As long as I can remember I have been told that horizontal stripes make you look wider, so what exactly is the allure?  

I have been challenging myself recently to break out of my habitual wardrobe routines, but for today with this mild weather a striped dress it is!

Are you drawn to certain patterns or trends?
