One of the newest looks for spring is stripes. From wide bands to narrow pinstripes, striped fabrics are everywhere. Whether you wear horizontal stripes (which tend to be somewhat less forgiving if you have curves), figure-slimming vertical stripes -- or any angle in between -- invest in at least a couple of striped pieces.
A classic approach is to coordinate a blue and white striped top with a navy (or ink) jacket and white slacks. Almost any striped combo will work, though, even if you want to mix and match your pieces. Yes, mixing your stripes is definitely an option. Imagine the fashion possibilities.
