I love camouflage dressing especially right after the holidays. Here’s how to use the element of Line to help you look sleek and chic! Think of your favorite striped pants. Chances are good that they have thin, subtle stripes. Narrowly spaced, vertical stripes and lines lead the eye up and down your body, making you appear taller and thinner. Widely spaced, thick vertical stripes with great color contrast move the eye across your body making it appear wider than it is.
