Wearing Stripes

A lot of people say plus-size women can’t/shouldn’t wear stripes. I suppose I agree with them to some extent, at least on a subconscious level, because I don’t have a lot of stripes in my wardrobe. I do have a few pieces, however, and I really enjoy wearing them all (although, certainly not together!).

The shirt has such narrow stripes that from a distance, it’s hard to tell that it is even a striped top. The jacket has bolder stripes, but when worn open, they’re broken up by whatever I’m wearing underneath, so again, it’s a good look. And the skirt has geometric stripes, which are much easier to wear in general, because they are so visually busy, and wearing any kind of stripe on the bottom of the outfit looks better in general.

So, plus-size women, take heart. Just because some people say you “can’t” wear stripes doesn’t mean you have to listen. There are options available for you…you just have to track them down, and decide which ones you like best!
