Being a bigger girl, I’ve been told that I shouldn’t ever wear stripes and I used to buy into that even though I would see a bunch of cute outfits I wanted to try. But a couple of years ago I decided to wear what I liked and began searching and searching for the right cuts and brands that fit my body type. I’ve decided that it’s not really the stripes that make them unflattering so much as the cut and size of the stripes in relation to the person wearing them.
Here are some outfits that I loved featuring stripes!

As you can see, stripes can be extremely versatile to wear! I’m so glad I decided to wear what I liked instead of listening to what people told me I couldn’t.
How do you rock your striped pieces? Or is there another pattern you love to wear? Have you ever considered trying new things or things people told you not to wear? I know that clothes are just clothes and in the scheme of things there are things that are WAY more important to worry about. But that’s why I think women should wear what they like and what makes them feel good! If you’ve not given stripes a try, please do! And I’d love to feature your outfit here on the blog if you do!
