How to instantly look a foot taller and 10 lbs slimmer?

Behold, the magic of head-to-toe vertical stripes!

I love stripes (clearly), but normally I wear the horizontal variety via a classic striped tee or dress. But I fell in love with this Melissa Lauren faux jumpsuit (it’s actually a top + high-waisted pants) because it felt like something you’d wear while strolling the French Riviera.

Once I put it on though, magic! I felt a foot taller and slimmer and it was fun to prance around The Getty terrace in statement-making stripes. Would you wear head-to-toe stripes?

I’m wearing:

Melissa Lauren top c/o | Melissa Lauren pants c/o | similar striped sunglasses (these red + white striped sunglasses are cute too!) | Lancaster bag c/o | Vintage b+w bracelet (similar here + here) | Chico’s ring + bracelet + ring c/o
