Prison Stripe Chic

Conventional fashion wisdom warns to stay away from horizontal stripes, but with the right silhouette and tailoring you can create a casual or elegant neutral ensemble. Dresses that accentuate your natural waist or have a dropped waist will give you a long and lean look and keep you from looking boxy. Narrow stripes and cotton fabric is a great everyday look paired with a colorful scarf and riding boots. The more structured options with broad stripes are appropriate for work or even drinks when worn with bright pumps or fun statement jewelry.
