Style Diaries: Stripes in Fashion

You want to make a point, you dress sharp! Wearing a crisp-cut suit may make you feel more powerful than you think. 

In the pictures below - two fashionistas of Bollywood (Priyanka and Malaika) are wearing pinstripes in warm, bright colours.

While stripes have the power to slim or widen a body, it is important to also touch on silhouette.  Often, we choose stripes based on whether or not the direction they move in are flattering, yet we need to focus on the silhouette also. No doubt about it that vertical stripes make you look longer and leaner. The flares in the bottom also takes off a bit of an edge from the formal look of the attire. Accessorize with metallics.
