Nautical Stripes…You know how much I love a Nautical Stripe. It’s a classic. I received this email from a client a few weeks ago and decided it was a great learning opportunity for you. Here’s what her comment was:
“pictures prove that fit and color are critical”
Nautical Stripes ARE a classic, but you must know how to choose your stripes. Choosing the wrong color, size and scale of a stripe can be the difference between a great looking style or adding needless extra pounds to your appearance.
In terms of style EVERYTHING MATTERS especially when choosing a stripe.
In the interest of FULL Disclosure, my client said to me:
“I am sending you two pics you might enjoy….share as you wish.”
It takes a confident woman to do that. I am grateful to my clients and grateful for you!
Thank you Phalynn…Many women will also thank you too….because

There are a few things wrong with this shirt:

- The dark stripe is not wide enough
- The fabric on the shirt is too soft to support properly
- Neckline should be deeper to draw the eye upward

- The Fabric is more substantial
- Sleeve length& neckline show more skin (more attractive)

- Fabric background is darker.
