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.
