Style Crave: Neutral StripesBy Ashley • Apr 21st, 2011 • Category: Bottoms, Dresses, FASHION, Lingerie, Shoes and Accessories, Tops
The mere thought of widening anything in or around my chest region is morifying… but shout outs to send to my homies at Made New York for making me fall in lust with stripes again. Loosely fitting dolman sleeves in easy to wear colors make all the difference in a stark, wide stripe, styled with… you guessed it, more stripes – horizontally positioned to slim & make you look less like a zebra.
