Stripes and Polka Dots


After my Spring Forward post, Beth inquired about all of these fabulous stripes she's been seeing in the stores this season.  I know that there are A LOT of opinions on stripes in regards to what is appropriate for your body type.  I think that there is some truth in that horizontal stripes are not necessarily the most flattering on everyone, but I am a firm believer in wearing clothes that make you feel good.  If you put on a nautical striped shirt this spring (and you should!) and you feel amazing it in-rock it! However, I do also acknowlege that not everyone is as eager to throw out the commandments of fashion as I am.

If you want to incorporate the stripes look into your wardrobe this spring, but aren't super comfortable with the horizontal orientation, I would recommend angular or vertical stripes.  There are a lot of great options out there in dresses and shirts this season.  Also, an alternative to stripes is polka dots.  Honestly, no one looks bad in polka dots! And the Kate Spade Effie Blouse below is to-die-for.
