Breaking the Rules

I know. This look breaks a cardinal fashion rule—“avoid horizontal stripes, for they make you look fat.” This sweater seems to be an exception though. Could it be the size of the stripes?
Nonetheless, today’s outfit features a black and white stripe wool sweater worn with black martin fit wool trousers. Red peep-toe pumps and a black leather hobo bag add final touches.

    I always avoided horizontal stripes as well … until I picked up a cute back&white top at Target this year … it looks very similar to your top and I just love it!

    Great! So let’s say that this fashion rule is to be taken under advisement. But, when we find an exception, go for it!
