There’s so much chatter around stipes! “It’s hard to pull off” they say. “Plus size women should not wear stripes” they say. Clearly, they haven’t see this post yet! Scroll below and see how the ladies of Fab Four Fashion debunk this foolishness. Oh, and next time you hear this “advice”, politely advise them that you’ve earned your stripes and that they can kick rocks! 🙂

Judy’s Look

Dress: ASOS // option for Curvy chic sisters:  here // Option for tall Babes: here // Sandals: here  // Sunglasses: Torrid // and friendly dog

Stripes are a trend that never goes away.  Stripes are everywhere from shirts, dresses, to shorts and pants.  Stripes are also one of the trends that transition well from season to season.  You might catch me wearing a cute striped black and white shirt with high-waisted trousers during the fall.

Well this time around I came across this edgy collared striped dress from my favorite online retailer. I love, love, everything about this dress, from the shape of it to the popping collar. This wrap kimono dress screamed Judy as soon I saw it on ASOS.

This dress is perfect for several occasions and transitions well from day to night.  I don’t need too much in the way of accessories as this outfit stands on its own, and with my black sandals and sunglasses it’s simply perfect.

Well I’m ready to “stripe it out” in the mean street of Toronto.


Leslie’s Look

Top: Banana Republic (sold out, similar here) // Skirt: eShakti // Shoes: Zara (sold out, similar here)//

For my curvy ladies: Top // Skirt (same as above as eShakti caters to all sizes) //

If you know me, you know the deal, I love print and the only thing better than a print is print mixing!

Slim girls you know, a flared skirt always gives us a little added volume while highlighting the waist-line creating that hourglass shape! Ooohh-la-la! If you want even more drama, add a crinoline or tutu underneath and you’re a veritable Cinderella!

The combo of this striped one shoulder top with the floral skirt oozes summer fun. Then we add in the pomp om sandals and what can I say, we have a little bit of magic going on!:-)

Ahhh, I just love summertime!


Gail’s Look

I love stripes whether worn vertically or horizontally-I’m wearing them!

Top: Ashley Stewart (old) similar here// Skirt: SimplyBe (old) similar here or here // Sandals: Forever 21 (old) similar here or here // Sunnies: random store // Clutch: Etsy

For my tall sistahs Top: Skirt

For my striped look I went for this vertically striped skirt from SimplyBe.  It’s a pull on bodycon style skirt the hugs my curves wonderfully!

I paired the skirt with this white tie front exaggerated sleeve crop top.  It’s made from cotton so its super breathable and has a touch of stretch to make it comfy too.

I complete my look with platform heels and I’m all set for what the remaining summer has in store for me.


Nancy’s Look

Jumpsuit: ASOS here (tall option now available in red here) // Shoes: Amazon

Plus size babes, get your stripe on with this jumpsuit  or this jumpsuit (or this HOT romper!! or that gorgeous one!!! Chile it’s hot).

I have said it before and I will say it again. I am a sucker for jumpsuits. I also love garments that have cool funky structure to them. It’s like structure and jumpsuit had a baby and created the Jumpsuit Structured Stripe with Knot and Drape Detail.

As soon as I saw it, my heart skipped a beat and I knew that it would be mine. I ordered it so quickly that it made my own head spin LOL. This great jumpsuit is a showstopper in itself and doesn’t require much to stand out.

With a piece like this, it’s impossible not to stand out. Now, long legged babes, I know that it’s a regular occurrence for us, so how about we make it worthwhile?! Don’t be afraid to step out in style. Yes all eyes are on you (they are anyway!) so if you love a piece (or shoes!!) that will make you jump out of a crowd even more, get it, own it, rock it and SLAY ON BABY!

Tah tah for now,

The Fab Four xoxo
