Spring 2013: Behind Bars

5

Barely into Fall, Spring 2013 fashion is upon us. And so, let’s talk Stripes, shall we?

As a woman of girth… What, not very pc? Okay, as a woman of curves, I have always held a bit of an obsessive fascination with stripes. I was told you can’t wear ’em and so naturally, I always have. You know, the same way we were told to stay off the bad boys? So bad, SO good.

I love stripes. Both the nautical and jailbird variety. But, they don’t always work on you, you know. They add width, those horizontal ones. Vertical ones, more forgiving (but not entirely, not always). Then what’s the trick you ask? The one size fits all answer of course, figure out what works for you. And if Spring 2013 is any indication of things to come, you better be well on the path to self-discovery already.

Personally for me, the trick lies in mixing stripes. Not only does it create a graphic geometric effect, it also is dizzyingly flattering. The other, play a game of peek-a-boo. Pair a horizontal top under a jacket/cardi and you should be okay. Even those of you whose, umm, cups runneth over. Either way, give it a shot.

French seaside, classic Americana. Retro. Vintage. It’s hard not to romanticize stripes or denounce their classic appeal. Or work in a pop-culture reference to make it (even more) current. But what am wondering is, 2012 is already winding down? Where the hell did the year go?

In Elie Saab & Rachel Zoe

The promotions of Players’ continued for two days in Delhi. For Day 1, Sonam picked a lovely red Elie Saab dress paired with nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Day two saw her in a camel Rachel Zoe military jacket paired with matching pants. I think I would’ve preferred this look if she picked contrasting pants. The color palette is too one toned.
