Having a vixen physique, you know the 36-24-36 types hip hop artists and rock stars have been crooning about for decades will never be a bad thing. Nevertheless, being shaped like Jessica Rabbit can be a challenge when wearing certain styles. Most of us do not want to look bigger than our natural size, so then how can stripes be rocked without adding girth to the hip area?
The key is which way the stripes are flowing on the garment, skirt or dress. Look slimmer by wearing pieces that have diagonal or vertical stripes. Instead of seeing lines that emphasis the widest part of your body, stripes that do not run horizontally will create an elongating effect.
