In 2015 stripes are no longer a trend, they are a style stable. Much like a striped shirt, a striped dress is an easy classic that literally everyone can wear. You can pair it with fun accessories, wear it with heels to dress it up, or keep it simple all over. There are so many options. Either horizontal, vertical, curved or chevron they popped up everywhere, adorning nearly every possible style and colliding with many of the summer fashion trends. Since vertical stripes enhance the appearance of height, they’re the best bet for the type of stripes petite women should wear. Chevron stripes or other asymmetrical stripes can also be flattering to petites. It’s usually a good idea to skip horizontal stripes, especially if they’re wide.
