Springtime Stripes

Stripes are really a girl's best friend, vertical to slim down and horizontal to add a slight hourglass dimension. The best thing about wearing stripes is that it instantly changes the narrative of an outfit. Pinstripes are for power meetings. Weekends call for nautical stripes. Such a pattern that is utilitarian majority of the time, and or playful for when the occasion calls for it.
