Lock Me Up…

4 Jan

Stripes, stripes and more stripes!  A recognizable trend happening in the new year is the ever elongating vertical stripe.  Horizontals are definitely on point for this year, however, verticals are always more flattering.  I realize that the print can register either way; inmate or absolutely great.  I like the combination of both.  But my personal favorite has to be the thought, Where Is Waldo? I love that while wearing such a simple print like stripes, you can stick out like a sore thumb – good or bad.  Vertical stripes can be forgiving when you allow it to.  With such a dominate direction of the vertical line, you need to be able to translate a well sense of guidance throughout the garment(s).  I wouldn’t recommend combining the two (horizontal and vertical) since your eye doesn’t know in which way to look.  So, whether you want the just-rolled-out-of-jail look or the look-at-me, 2013 is your year ;).
