It’s no secret that Prada‘s Spring 2011 collection has been popping up everywhere—and one dress in particular, which has graced the covers of no fewer than eight magazines and one red carpet.
This comes as no surprise, as stripes are probably one of the easiest trends to pull off and tend to have more staying power (i.e. heavy closet rotation) than other more daring trends. That said, the particular dress of which I speak has thus spawned a number of glorious knocks-offs, permutations, and emulations, providing options galore for everyone…
From a fishtail skirt and a short shift, to an easy breezy maxi, retailers have got you covered–literally. And, if you’re worried about the usual bad rap horizontal stripes tend to get (mainly, widening your ass), there’s no need to fret! The varying heights of these stripes actually keep the eyes of onlookers on a vertical plane, which, in turn, actually gives you a slightly slimmer, more hourglass appearance. Who can say no to that?
