Spring Trend 2013: Stripes…Figure Flattering Ways!!

Many people come to reinvention when life changes around them, but people come in all different stripes. I’m oriented to change.
Unlike Jane,I am into reinvention, but I definitely like my stripes a different way.  I realize horizontal stripes are big on the trend scene…it is one of those trends which goes in and out on a regular basis.
But, for a curvy lady as I am, the horizontal stripe is not a figure flattering look.  I bought this Daisy Fuentes top at Kohl’s last year.  I love the diagonals of the top and how slender I feel in it.  This is how to make a trend work for your body type…maybe go in a different direction!!
I have studied fashion rules for years (which I will discuss on Tuesday), but it does make a difference to learn what will flatter your body type.  I also like the vertical stripes and find them to be flattering as well.  Here are a couple of looks, first from Foxcroft Contrast Stripe; second from Talbots…both more figure flattering than horizontal.

  1. Yes, your stripes are *very* flattering, Pam – you wear them so well! Thanks for sharing the look with Visible Monday xoxoxo

  2. You know how to make the stripe trend work for you by tweaking it into a diagonal look. I really like the top on you! I only do vertical or chevron stripes myself. I'll skip the horizontals, thank you LOL!

  3. Your stripes go everywhere, all directions so the top is definitely flattering.I have a question is this the teachers office you are posing frequently ?

  4. Pam, you look absolutely fantastic in this. I like the philosophy that goes with it too! Of course I have always been a fan of your jewellery stylings.

  5. Perfect way to wear stripes lovely Pam!

  6. You wear these stripes with confidence, which shows on your face and in your pose. Whatever you're doing, you're going in the right direction and it radiates from the screen!

  7. This is a beautiful look, Pam. I really like the jacket and you are perfectly accessorized. You have such a vibrant smile, which is your best accessory.
