We'll wrap up our fashion week highlights with J. Mendel and his lovely vertical color block pieces. Some of us avoid stripes like the plague for fear they will make us look fat. While horizontal stripes have that effect, vertical stripes are elongating and can actually make you appear taller and slimmer. J. Mendel's collection of vertically color blocked pieces and feminine, fluttery dresses with surprise pops of contrasting colors. Overall it was modern, sophisticated, and extremely flattering.
