ASK LJUBENKA

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - FASHION NEWS -

Dear Ljubenka, I am a curvy woman and I love wear­ing stripes. But I’ve heard stripes make you look larger. Should I re­ally avoid these when it comes to my fashion choices? I love to wear clothes that make me happy. I love stripes and I wear them a lot, es­pe­cially in a top or T-shirt. There is some­thing to be said about a chic and clas­si­cal nau­ti­cal theme – it’s so fresh. The most flat­ter­ing op­tion in my opin­ion is if the stripes are thin­ner rather than thicker and if you stick to navy, black or char­coal coloured stripes. If you are still un­sure about wear­ing stripes, wear a solid, darker colour jacket or vest over the top. The eye sees a small, thin­ner panel of stripes and the darker colour draws your sil­hou­ette in from your sides. Wear­ing any colour, print or fab­ric that makes you happy is a must! Con­fi­dence is key.
