As I said in a previous post, horizontal stripes are usually a no go area, but I give you ….Cat Deeley! Ok, maybe not all of us have washboard abs to display but that aside, this striped red and black outfit is so tasteful and fresh. Again, like the dress I blogged about yesterday, because the skirt is fuller rather than figure hugging, the stripes are actually extremely complimentary. This is such an easy look to copy. Even if you don’t want to do stripes from top to bottom, team a striped jumper with plain black pencil trousers OR pair a plain jumper with a striped fuller skirt which preferably ends at the knee or down to the ankle.
