The Right Way to Do Stripes

Clothes can often be an optical illusion, making you look thinner or wider through the use of color and print. Darker colors, like black, are slimming. That's why every girl owns a million and one LBDs (little black dresses). Print can also play with your perception. Horizontal stripes, for example, can make you look bigger, while vertical stripes do the opposite. BCBGMaxAzria turned this basic rule into a dress designed to make your chest look bigger and your hips and waist more narrow. What woman wouldn't want that? I also love the green and blue hues, and I played with my eye makeup to match.

The dress is still available at 6pm, and you can find the same dress in a different color scheme at Amazon. I actually bought it for a steal (I think $15 maybe) at Belk. They were having a clearance sale a few weeks ago, and I scored some amazing finds. If you're in Atlanta, definitely check out the Belk at Phipps Plaza!
