get that look: VERTICAL PATTERN

Vertical lines are always flattering and slimming.  They draw the eye up and down which helps you look long and lean as opposed to horizontal lines which draw the eye across and can sometimes make you look wider than you really are. 

Cynthia Nixon looks amazing in her vertical pattern, vintage inspired dress while filming her role as Miranda in the up coming movie Sex And The City 2.  In addition to the vertical lines, another thing that helps Cynthia look extra long and lean is the silhouette of this dress.  It is flowy, it drapes well over her body, and it is cinched at the natural waist.  This helps accentuate the waistline and camouflage problem areas like the stomach and butt.  For the same easy silhouette and similar vertical prints try the Vanitas Sabrina Dress in Aqua Print and Lavender Print.

Cynthia has also accessorized perfectly!  When wearing a bold print it is important to compliment it with solid accessories so that the print can really stand out.  Joan suggests the Marcello Toshi Joya in Olive paired with the Tucker Paisley Molly Tote in Olive.  These pieces will match each other and compliment the colors in either Vanitas Dress very nicely.
