Omega's Picks: Plus Size Stripes

Model is wearing a dress similar to this Dorothy Perkins number
I know, I know, I can hear some of you. "Stripes?" you're saying... "Plus size stripes? Don't you know that plus sized people are NOT meant to wear stripes???"

And, yes, like you, I have heard that tired old trope trotted out many, many times.. and you know what I have to say to that?  BALDERDASH!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so if you cast your eyes to the right here, I think we can settle this one once and for all.

Stripes, especially horizontal ones, show off curves beautifully.. if you want to emphasise the curves of your figure, stripes are the way to do it.

Of course, wearing stripes if you're plus sized might make you stand out a bit, but some of us just weren't born to blend into the background... were we?

Here's some great options if you'd like to introduce some stripes into your wardrobe....
