Stripes for Spring!

Coco Chanel first made stripes chic - despite those challenging horizontal lines. If this bothers you, notice that the narrow stripes create a "ladder" effect, drawing the eye up and down. A jacket worn over the top can instantly divide a wide upper body. 

The traditional nauticals are usually found in black/white or navy/ivory combinations. Choose the one that best suits your complexion - even if you need to find a red/ivory version. You can also try Natalie's trick from the French and wear a scarf against your face!
