Flatter your figure with mitered stripes

Unlike practically any other print out there, stripes can work some major magic. Simply by varying width and stripe orientation, you can visually change your figure at a moment’s notice. In the world of stripes, however, there is one style that is perhaps the most magical and look-changing: the mitered stripe. Creating a V-shaped pattern, mitered stripes can lengthen the body, creating a tall, sleek silhouette unlike anything else. Especially in fit and flare shapes, It’s practically the ultimate in figure flattery.
