Just about everybody has a stripy top lurking in their wardrobe. Unfortunately horizontal stripes can amplify a large bust in a way that may make you feel that your breasts are the latest feature on Google maps. The best way to mitigate this effect is to break up your stripes. Here, Susannah wears a top where the striped area is reduced – the sleeves are plain and the stripes do not go all the way up to her neckline. You will further minimise the block of stripes by wearing a plain jacket, unbuttoned.
Conversely, you can wear a striped jacket open over a plain or boldly patterned top.
Do you struggle to wear stripes or are they one of the building blocks of your wardrobe?
