We (and Kim Kardashian) are here to dispel the old myth that you can’t wear horizontal stripes because you’ll look fat. It simply is not true. The nautical look is back for spring and we’ve enlisted Kim Kardashian to show you how to make stripes look not only sexy, but also slimming:
Go for a red and white body-hugging sailor t-shirt, like this one by A.P.C. ($70) so that excess baggy shirt doesn’t add any volume to your look. Pair it with a khaki high-waisted skirt, like this pocketed one by Nanette Lepore ($298), that will cover any problem stomach areas, and poufs out a bit making your waist look smaller.
Nothing like some nude strappy heels from Pour La Victoire ($290) to amp up the va va voom in an otherwise tame outfit. Throw on a top handle tote by Fossil ($103.60), that’s not exactly the same color as your shoes as too preppy, matchy-matchy.
Top off the look with this J.Crew crystal rock necklace ($128) that works with everything in your wardrobe.
