VERTICAL HORIZONTAL Akangsha looks fab! <3 PS: Ignore my expressions! 

Stripes all the way for Summers!

Stripes: A staple of everyone's wardrobe are as usual in this summer as well.
Every print, design or silhouette we wear has some science behind it. Pair them with right pieces and tame the stripes on you.Either for lazy weekends or desks or dinners, they can make you look comfy and smart at the same time.

Quick facts to digest- 

You already know it!
Vertical stripes make you look taller than the horizontal ones. Not that you should never wear horizontal stripes, but you can always coordinate them smartly on tees with silhouettes that give illusion to your body shape. Eg. Akangsha wearing a horizontal striped tee with puffed sleeves.

Fit into them right!
Keep in mind that whatever you try should always fit you correctly. A lose striped dress might not show your curves

Accent always works!
Accented stripes with accessorries such as bags, shoes, scarves or brooches are always the saviour of your last minute outfit decisions. Pair your regular denims and tops with a bit of striped accessories popping here and there.

Color them all!
Especially for the summers when the colors are all bright and happy, stripes just look great as a lovely rainbow in the sky. And try wearing solid colored denims or skirts with them. You'll just catch everyone's eye!

Mixing is good!
Mix stripes with solids or maybe other prints- florals or polka dots. But remember keeping a breathing space in you look.

Flying in a skirt!
Skirts are like the coolest thing to wear in summers. Flaunt in them with horizontal stripes and you wouldn't have to worry if you look fat in horizontal stripes.

Maxi saved for the last!
Yes, yes, Maxi dresses with a comeback in a super-huge way for evening parties and weekend fun look A-mazing with stripes. 

Have a happy stripe hunting!
