Behind the stripes

I’m not sure whether it’s the return of one my favorite tv programs ever (#OITNB all the way) but this outfit definitely makes me think of a life behind bars. Not that it’s prison – worthy. The look was definitely more inspired by SS catwalks and endless amount of striped items on the high street than Ms Chapman. I dare say it would suit her better than the orange ‘jumpsuit’, considering her complexion, hair colour and so on…

My general rule when it comes to horizontal stripes is simple. Stay Away.

Since I decided to give them a go, I thought I might as well go all out. We all know of the fattening results of wearing horizontal stripes and the elongating effect of vertical stripes. So what do you get when you combine the two? A bit of a behind the bars/Anna K look. Throwing in a pair of fab Boohoo heels was a no-brainer for me.

Unconventional but somehow it works. For now. Move over Chapman.
