The Horizontal Stripe Myth

We have all heard that old adage that horizontal stripes are a no no for women with curves. Well I for one have never felt that was true, so when I heard that celebrity stylist and host of UK tv show How To Look Good Naked, Gok Wan, felt the same way I just had to share the news with you. Gok, an expert in body confidence who helps women the world over appreciate what they have and fake what they don't believes that "horizontal stripes give the illusion of a small waist and help define curves" and City Chic's new collection features 3 amazing pieces that do just that.

City Chic Striped Skater Dress $99.95 AUD

The City Chic Striped Skater Dress with its flattering skater shape and graphic stripes is the perfect example of horizontal stripes working their illusionary magic. With the added help of a thick black waistband this dress does all the work for you and requires nothing more to give you an amazing shape that makes you look and feel amazing.

City Chic Stripe Panel Skirt With Belt $69.95 AUD

City Chic Stripe Panel Skirt With Belt  is a classic pencil skirt with a twist, the front and back stripe panel's modernise the skirt and the red belt adds an element of colour blocked fun. The black side panels add a flattering touch as they visually minimise your width, a very clever trick. You can dress this skirt up for the office or wear it casually on the weekend for brunch, its a very versatile piece.
