The Apple Shape Wardrobe: 6 Tips on Wearing Stripes

Why stripes?

Don’t you just love stripes? They feel tres chic and oh so French. I feel like they will never go out of style so they are also classic and timeless. Unfortunately horizontal stripes in particular can be tricky on my apple shape because they add width, but I have a couple tricks up my sleeve. Let me know what you think!

1. When wearing stripes on the upper half of your body, make sure you elongate it with a vertical line in the form of blazer, jacket, cardigan, vest etc-
