Of course you know from my previous post that black and white is in for this spring. But that black and white is not just about black skirts and white tops. It also extends to black and white patterns, and one of the hottest patterns right now is black and white stripes.
It is a commonly held belief that wearing clothes with horizontal stripes will make you look fatter. But Hermann von Helmholtz however proved that this is not true but quite the opposite. Horizontal stripes in fact make you look slimmer and taller
Don't be afraid to mix it up and go along with diagonal stripes as well. To add some real intrigue you can mix the stripes as well. You can use diagonal with horizontal stripes or large stripes with thin stripes.
