How to wear vertical stripes?

Along with the blue stripes shirt Zaful sent me, I also got this classic vertical stripes with pocket blouse. Hmm.. I am really into stripes. Haha! I already gave tips on wearing horizontal stripes, so now allow me to give tips again on how to wear vertical stripes. Who wants to look thinner; just raise your hands-up!

The key to wearing stripes is to pair it with a solid color. It is not overwhelming; you'll surely in a safe side on that. Some are mixing stripes with other prints like floral. Well, this is kind of risky to pull but hey, good luck! Moving on, look at my shirt, a vertically white & black stripe looks great with white or black pants. I chose to pair it with my favorite black jeggings since the purpose is to look thinner; black is always a savior when that dilemma attacks. And if you're sporting a striped skirt or pants, then wear a solid-colored tee; as simple as that. Another tip is go for a V-neck shirt/ blouse. It creates an illusion of longer neck, thus your body will look elongated.

This vertical stripes blouse is a round neck but I fold an inch of the collar hem so I created a V-neckline as seen on the pictures. This blouse is bigger than I expected. When I ordered a medium size, Zaful emailed me that medium is out of stock, so I picked size small instead. When the item finally arrived, I was surprised how big this blouse is. It's a blessing in disguise that my size was out of stock or else I'll just wear it when I sleep like a PJ. Lol! I think the design of this is intended to be very loose. I can wear it as long sleeve or a quarter rolled up sleeves. By the way, have you gone shopping at Zaful yet?
