So as i had mentioned in the previous post , here is the story all about patterns and prints. Florals, polka dots , stripes and so much more , Oh my ! learn how to wear the most figure flattering pattern for you  🙂


VERTICAL STRIPES : They convey strength and authority. They’re great for shorter women who want added height because vertical stripes elongate, making you look slimmer.

HORIZONTAL STRIPES : It conveys a more restful look (appropriate for business-casual situations), but they definitely accentuate width, making most women look heavier than they really are. In other words, unless you’re super-slim, stay away from horizontal stripes.


Here is an example of how horizontal stripes can make people look wider but since Shilpa Shetty has a slim body and is tall , she is able to carry this off pretty well .


DIAGONAL STRIPES : They convey energy and creativity and are the most slimming pattern.

This striped dress is ideal for cruel summer days & nights as its made out of thin cotton jersey material which falls in a rather flattering way. On Shirin’s inverted triangle body shape, the deep v neck makes her shoulders appear narrow while pleats around front and back with an empire waistline add the necessary curve to her frame. Diagonally placed stripes through out the dress add the illusion of a narrow curvy frame. This is a very clever outfit for someone who is an inverted triangle or rectangle body type.



FLORAL PRINTS :  convey femininity and are perfect for social gatherings and weekend wear, which is why you see floral patterns a lot at parties and weddings. However, be sure to pick a floral pattern that is proportionate to your size. “A petite woman should choose a small- to medium-size floral print,” says Williams. Larger women will find larger floral prints more figure-flattering.

POLKA DOTS : also convey femininity. And, contrary to what your mother told you, Williams says most women can, in fact, wear polka dots. “Polka dots are the perfect answer for women who aren’t comfortable in floral patterns to subtly show off their femininity,” she says

And remember, all patterns come in more abstract variations. You just need to try different styles on to determine which one you feel most comfortable in.

When selecting a striped item, Williams suggests choosing a mixture of stripe widths. “Solid, bold stripes especially when they’re horizontal have the tendency to widen,” she says. Patterns have the power to accentuate or minimize yourcurves, so know your body, determine the image you want to convey and then get out there and have fun with patterns. Your options are endless!
