In very early times, stripes were a status symbol and proudly worn like a badge of honor - or some cases, disgrace!
- Narrow pinstripes - businessman
- Horizontal stripes - sailor
- Blue and white stripes - butcher
- Red and white stripes - barber
- Wide vertical stripes - gangster
- Broad stripes - convict
If striped outfits are not your style, perhaps you can choose stripped accessories instead. Look to bags and handbags in stripes, perhaps a fun belt, a scarf or a selection of striped bracelets. Have fun with your choices.
Are super on trend and very femme but you may not have it in your budget to buy a ruffle dress or more. Instead look for accessories like a purse, a simple ruffle tailored shirt, or perhaps a jacket with a few ruffles. Keep it simple don't go over board. Ruffles are making waves in jewelry even though some don't look at all like ruffles. So just pick one item or 2 small ones.
Did you already buy that ruffle dress this past spring or summer? You can still wear it just add layers, the right accessories and a warm coat. Have fun with fashion and don't take it too seriously. As all was stay healthy and skin is in!
