Happy Thursday my friends!

If you've scrolled through Instagram, flipped through at least one magazine, or just walked into a couple of stores, chances are you've seen an array of clothing and accessories in a stripe pattern and not just any stripe, light blue and white stripes, better known as banker stripes. This particular combination is quite different than nautical stripes, which feature a navy blue and white combination. Also, banker stripes aren't horizontal, they're vertical, which are more universally figure flattering and as a result, it takes less effort to style. 

Vertical stripes can make you look taller and don't add visual width, so you don't have to worry much about placement in avoiding certain areas you may not want to look bigger exaggerated. I have shared tips and tricks for wearing classic black and white stripes (see here) but if you still tend to avoid them because you feel they don't look good on you or make you feel self-conscious than I say try the banker stripes you and you just may love them! 

What are YOUR thoughts on this stripe trend? Are you loving them? Have you tried them?

Thanks so much for stopping by, my dear friends, and I hope you're having a great day so far!
