Wearing stripes is one of my many joys in life. They are fun, colorful and motivational. There is a misconception that stripes make anyone look wider or bigger, but if chosen carefully they can actually elongate your figure. One of the most Instagrammable red striped shirts is from Zara (pictured on the top left). I have one as well if you want to see how I wore it.
It seems that stripes and gingham are extremely trending this summer. I both love and hat this trend. I love it because I am finally able to find more clothing items with stripes, but I also hate it because everyone now is all about stripes. And plaid does count as stripes or gingham.
