HORIZONTAL Stripes:Trend Alert ,Breaking Myths and OOTD

Horizontal stripes is one of the hottest trend this spring summer. Today on the blog we have celebrity stylist  Cristina Ehrlichis, Hollywood's go-to expert for putting together solid outfits and is the name behind some of the Hollywood's most stylish. In a recent interview with an international fashion magazine she talked about year's biggest trend, 'Horizontal Stripes' : Don't be afraid of horizontal stripes ."I really want to help women understand that stripes do work on all body types."

My take:
There's a sort of myth and fear that horizontal stripes are going to make you look bigger, and it's really not true.  Instead, a horizontal on top or bottom just needs a perfect pairing.One rule I totally swear by when sporting such trends is, Understand your body-type and dress accordingly. If you have print on top,wear solid on bottom and if you want to wear a printed bottom wear solid on top.

That's how I styled my Outfit a few weeks ago for a day out with girls.

I am wearing :
I styled this outfit keeping the same rule in mind. I paired this black-white horizontal stripes high-waist skirt with a denim button-down shirt .To accessorize the look I added some bright neon and bling accessories to add a dash of my personal style to the look.

Denim Shirt: Thrifted '12
Skirt: FCUK'11
Loafers: Catwalk'12
Sling Clutch: Zara'12
Ring: Blur'12
Watch: Aldo Accessories'11
Bracelet/Bangle : Zara'12
