Stripes may be just a simple compiled straight lines printed on a cloth but still, it must be worn with certain things to keep in mind. There are only two choices: vertical or horizontal stripes yet you have to know which fits you well. Vertical stripes are best for those who want to look tall and thin. For tops, vertical stripes may help you to look tall by making your upper body look longer –same with pants it can make your legs look longer which is perfect for short-legged.
What I’m wearing: Surplus shop tanktop, Bangkok jacket, Dockers shorts, Havaianas flip-flops, Boomerang dog tag, Flea market watch strap for iPod nano 6th gen.
On the other hand, horizontal stripes are the complicated one. If you’re thin and petite this will never be a problem. But if you have a big upper body, it can make you look bigger or worst, chubbier! So to lessen the horizontal-stripes-effect I wore this light blue jacket that I bought in Bangkok, which also matched with the color of my top.
Large stripes are said to be not too stylish for others –which something that I don’t agree with. Always remember that being stylish comes with confidence and courage of mixing, matching and layering of clothes. With proper pairing of colors and balance on shades you can be as stylish as you want to be! LOL
Dog tags are known as the identification tags. Before, they are usually worn by militaries that serve as their name or information tags especially when they are found dead or wounded. In relation with that, dog tags are now commonly used as accessories –but me, I prefer using it without changing how dog tags are used and made. This made possible by Boomerang! It offers different characters and designs of dog tags or even accepting request for customization. So I requested Jake, one of my favorite characters and a simple one with a josephcham.com written on it.
iPod Nano 6th gen has different straps to choose from! This silicon strap that I bought at Greenhills prevents my watch from scratches. Also, its color compliments the shades of my whole outfit!
At present, flip-flops are already part of the fashion trends especially during summer. It is one of the best friends of those who always want to wear something cozy especially when going to malls or hanging out with friends. So to make you still look fashionable Havaianas has different styles and artistic designs that can make your feet look trendy and relaxed! LOL
