Do stripes make you look fat?
Personally I am a great believer that you should wear what ever makes you feel most comfortable however here is a better guide on how to make stripes work for you.
For years mothers have told their daughters that horizontal stripes do the female figure no favours and that vertical ones are more flattering. As a result, many women have spent their lives avoiding horizontal hoops for fear of looking fat.

Horizontal stripes have become a perennial favourite in fashion collections. This season, designers including J. Crew, Juicy Couture and Stella McCartney are showcasing stripes, while navy-and-white striped Breton tops are ubiquitous in High Street stores such as Zara and Gap.
