I am still going through my bold prints pants phaseWide stripes are trending right now and, in my opinion, rightfully so.

I’ve read that, contrary to the popular belief that stripes make the body look slimmer and taller, they actually make you look bulkier. I couldn’t care less whether they make me look thinner or bulkier. What do you think about this debate? Let me know in the comment section.

These particular pants are from Dynamite. Because the wide stripes are so bold, I paired the pants with solid coloured pieces. This makes the pants stand out even more.

I looove stripes. I have loved them before they were trending, I will love them after they are done trending. My love for stripes stems from my love for structure and lines in my clothing, which,  in turn, stems from my love for architecture. So you see, like I always say, fashion/style is a form of unique self expression. This is why, when one has truly learned to express oneself through clothing, it is difficult to hide the quintessential elements of one’s personality from one’s personal style.

      Thanks, Funke! I agree with you on that. That is what I always thought about stripes. But then I read that article that I linked, which says it makes you look bigger.
