Navy and White Striped Dress

Blue and white stripes will forever remind me of the beach, and when in the right form, this classic print is suitable for nearly every summertime soiree. Today I am offering you some midi striped dress “fashpiration.”

With a few cocktail occasions already on the calendar, when I spotted this retro style striped dress, at Current Clothing, I was immediately sold! The hip hugging silhouette flatters in all of the right places, while the midi length balances out the slim fit and open back detail. My favorite kind of dress – classic with a twist! If you have an athletic body, a striped dress like this can potentially give you the hourglass figure you’ve always admired. Just make sure the darker hue hits at the natural waistline.

A piece like this is bold by itself. For that reason I kept the accessories to a minimum, and stuck with a conservative color palette. By simply incorporating white touches (a pair of earrings and a bracelet) the whole look was sharpened. Because I can never resist a pop of color, I styled this look with a red striped clutch and red sole shoes. You can never go wrong with red, white and blue!

      Thank you so much for the sweet compliment. You can never go wrong with a print like this for the summer months. Midi length skirts and dresses are slowly but surely becoming a favorite of mine. Glad we are on the same page. 🙂

      Thanks Tiffani! You can never go wrong with classic prints. I am so glad that you like how I paired the nude clutch with the dress. I thought the red stripe was just enough oomph.

    This dress is stunning! I love the size of the stripes and how it fits you. That back! You’re so right, it makes enough of a statement on it’s own without much accessorizing it!

      Thanks Emily! I am glad we are on the same page about accessories. I love them but when I am working with a statement piece I would rather not take away from it! Happy Tuesday.

    Kelsey, loved this look the minute I saw it on Instagram! Seriously too cute and so my style! Now that I am seeing some of the details on the back of the dress and with the cutouts, I am loving it even more.
