There are broadly two types of clothing... one that you just throw on without giving a second thought, and know it will look good. The other, are the ones that you especially pick out to either add a touch of styling magic to your look or conceal perceived problem areas. A pair of jeans and a tee is just that at the end of the day but a wrap dress... a wrap dress is majorly loved courtesy its feminine silhouette that cinches at just the right place.
But, the one style that women can rely on to give fantastic results are is stripes. They can add length, remove some, accentuate your curves or add the tiniest statement detail, the possibilities are endless. And believe it or not, your favourite celebs seem to have been following up on the same rules for stripes. So we rounded up some of the tricks they are using to wear the style this season!
