One of the most obvious trend of the Resort 2013 collections is the stripe print. It is seen in different versions. In some clothing it’s subtle, with its thin lines disappearing and appearing on the clothing, depending on the lighting. In some, the stripe was bold and big. It can also be seen in various angles or used randomly.
Whatever way it is used, the stripe print is a definite yes for any corporate ensemble. Here are some tips on how to harness its ‘print power’ to your own personal style. Mind you, this is not about the elongating or narrowing effect of the stripe. The tips are also not about the widening effect of it, as this is already (almost) common knowledge. The fashion tips shown below are going to give you a different perspective and ways of using the stripe to your own silhouette advantage.
The stripe print is an instant way of looking elegant. The thinner it is, the more sophisticated it looks. Being one of the most classical of prints, the stripe evokes a sense of maturity and being in total control of the whole ensemble. It’s always a subtle way of having a pop of contrast in your whole corporate fashion outfit as well.
Pair your stripe with lighter tones or shades of fashion items and pair it with some black and gold accessories. This creates an aura of elegance and poise instantly.
CHOOSE YOUR ANGLE
Stripes are also a great way of creating some visual contrast across your body. It can visually hide, emphasize or even curve your shape, depending on where it falls and how it is placed on it. That is why, in choosing your stripe print, it is best that you choose one that fits your silhouette perfectly. This way, the stripe can flatter your body type even more.
COLOR YOUR LIFE
Another great thing about stripes this Resort 2013 is that it comes in different colors. The most refreshing kind is the one of the same color range but in both lighter and darker tone contrast. This is a great version of stripe as I can easily be paired off with other items. Since it’s not too contrasting, it can be paired with other solid colored items easily. However, because it is printed, it can also become the contrasting piece of your whole office ensemble. Choose light colored stripes for an accent piece, while dark colored ones for a more subtle hint of break in your suits.
