Plus Size Striped Dress Outfit {3 Ways}

This plus size striped dress {sold out} is adorable and can be styled in all sorts of fun ways for summer!  Still not sure about wearing stripes?  Below is part of this post with my thoughts on stripes:

If you’re intimidated by horizontal stripes, might I recommend wearing them as a layer.  The BS “theory” behind the “no plus sized women in horizontal stripes” is that stripes make you look “wide(r).”  However, breaking up the pattern with a layer, such as an open cardigan, circumvents this “problem.”

Note my abundant use of quotation marks.  The reason is that I don’t believe in these rules regarding what is acceptable vs unacceptable for plus size women.  To me, “flattering” is relevant to everyone.  But, nothing, I repeat, nothing is off-limits because of one’s size.  The best thing I’ve read about the stripe controversy is “Are horizontal stripes REALLY making you look fat?”(a must-read), written by Melissa at Suger Coat It.  She breaks it down for us: “No, horizontal stripes won’t make you look fat. Only being fat makes you look fat. And you know what, that’s okay.”
