Here’s what I think. Stripes can be tricky, but when done correctly, they’re not so bad (don’t be scared, in other words!). When they’re varying colors and widths, for instance, they’re pretty flattering. And it’s all in the cut of the outfit, really. Maria’s strapless version and Kristen’s one-shoulder style are both super-cute ways to wear a summer dress. And you can never go wrong when it’s nipped in at the waist – show that figure you’ve worked so hard to get!
