Accentuate your figure with a Vertical Striped Dress

Is there any girl who does not like a vertical striped dress? Well no one that I know of! Stripes are a universal favourite; especially vertical ones. We always hear that one should dress according to the body type and not according to trends. Having said that, both can be combined too! So embrace things that are classic yet always trendy like stripes. And today I would like to elaborate five ways on how to accentuate your figure.
1. A vertical striped dress adds an illusion of height. It makes your torso look longer as  well as your legs. The vertical stripes also makes you look slim since it elongates the body.
2. Avoid anything very contrasting to prevent looking shorter. Like a solid white blouse with a solid black skirt or vice versa. It divides the body sharply making you look short and stubby.
3. Wear nude heels to elongate the legs. Avoid footwear that has ankle straps as they shorten your legs.
4. Avoid trousers that end just above the ankles. They make your calf look fat something called 'cankles'. Wear long trousers that end below the ankles.
5. Avoid big prints to prevent looking fat. Go for solid colours or monochromatic look to defy the same. Also small prints make you look slim and youthful.

Wear dark colours to look slimmer. That is a cliche but very effective! So with major points now on the mind, go shop to your heart's content and body style! Happy styling!
