I used to be afraid of horizontal stripes. Home economics teachers, fashion magazines and other presumed authorities told me horizontal stripes made a person look bigger. But, over the years, I’ve often been asked if I’ve lost weight when I wear a horizontal striped jersey, especially one with wide stripes. My theory is that the wide stripes define a waistline, kind of like a belt, and can flatter a woman’s figure. I mention this because Jones New York has a lot of striped tops, horizontal and vertical, on sale this weekend, through June 17. Take, for instance, the Jones New York Striped Cardigan (was $159, now $63) above. This sweater is only available in petite sizes, but there are other tops in a range of sizes. In fact, JNY's online site has a ton of tops, sweaters, jackets, and slacks in stripes as well as solids of every color marked down 60%.
