In 1984 the stripe dress was a trend and a very popular trend it was. Fast Forward 30 years later and the infamous stripe dress is still a hit. The stripe dress is perfect for a casual outing with friends. The help of the accessories can transform the look from day to night. In the day the dress can be worn to a pic nic and at night it can be worn on an outing with friends or a date. Stripes can be used to heighten the body or they can be used to widen the body. If you are on the slim side of the gate the horizontal stripes are for you because they make the body appear wider. On the other hand if you want to appear slimmer then vertical stripes are best for you.
