They say rules are meant to be broken, and we think they're talking about all those antiquated plus-size style rules that are just begging to be destroyed. Seriously, who ever decided that fuller females can’t rock stripes? Curves that look great already will look better when emphasized with a little vertical or horizontal action.
But, just like any trend, it’s still smart to pick and choose what fits your frame the best. Thankfully, the market is filled with lines of every width, color, and angle, so you can find exactly what stripes work for your style. Whether you dream of Beetlejuice-inspired button-ups or you have a more sorbet-flavored palette, we’ve lined up some of the hottest styles that will let you show your true stripes.
