Striped shirts are an easy wardrobe basic to pull-off. Contrary to popular belief, striped shirts can actually be very flattering on your figure. It all comes down to the width and placement of the stripes. Thinner stripes make you look thinner, & stripes that are closer together make you look thinner. You can also consider a striped shirt a neutral. Wear it with printed skirts, khakis, jeans, or leather. As with any wardrobe basic, fit is key!
