The Good Kind of Stripes

Jumpsuit: ASOS (And I am wearing a 6 for reference!)// Heels: Schutz (Here are the $35 dupes) // Crossbody Bag: Anthropologie // Sunglasses: c/o Ascot + Hart // Earrings: Gorjana // Bangle: c/o David Yurman

There are all sorts of theories when it comes to stripes….

Horizontal stripes make you look wider than you actually are….KINDOF A MYTH. Black and white stripes should be reserved for a jail…THIS IS STUPID. Vertical stripes will lengthen your body……TRUTH!

When I spotted this jumpsuit…my initial reaction was that there was NO WAY it could be flattering…it was a disaster waiting to happen: vertical stripes, a neckline that statistically isn’t flattering on me, wide leg culottes, a high waistline, & ankle grazing horizontal stripes. There was no chance in hell that this jumpsuit could actually be attractive on me.

So how did I get from “disaster waiting to happen” to “wearing the cutest striped jumpsuit that’s ever been designed?!” Well, that’s where taking a chance sometimes pays off! Sometimes you have to trust that the hanger doesn’t do it justice or that you won’t 100% know unless you try it on.

And every once and a while, it’s the most pleasant striped surprise.
