My Favorite 5 Ways to Style a Striped Dress

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday!

Striped Dress: Target (similar here and here) | Chambray Shirt: Old Navy | Shoes: Forever 21 (less than $15!) | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: David Yurman | Ring: Banana Republic | Purse: Nordstrom (less than $40!)

A striped dress is a closet staple no matter what, and one of the reasons why is because it can be styled almost an infinite numbers of ways! The look above has been one of my favorite ways to style my striped dress this summer (mostly because of how much I love these cute white sneakers), but I also wanted to provide you all with a few of my other favorite ways to style a striped dress!

#1  Go Army

A striped dress is a great item to add layers to in general, and one great way to do this is with an army style vest (like this one on the Nordstrom sale!)  When the temperatures get a little bit cooler in the fall you wear a similar look by incorporating a utility jacket (like this one) in place of the vest! 

#2 Go Professional

For the vast majority of us, most of our time is spent in work clothes.  Fortunately for me, I work in a casual environment, so my wardrobe inside and outside of the office doesn't differ too greatly.  That being said, there are some days I like my look to have that professional flair, and an easy way to do this is to add a fitted blazer (like this one) and a pair of pumps!

#3 Go Edgy

I often like to tell myself that I can pull off an edgy look (even if it isn't totally true..), but a great way to achieve an easy edgy look is to pair a striped dress with a ripped denim jacket (like this one) and pair of black booties (like these)!

#4 Go Bold

The great thing about stripes is that they can essentially act as a neutral, so a striped dress is a great place to mix patterns (especially if you don't normally mix patterns).   Add a leopard print belt or leopard print purse to the outfit.  Or go bold with your color choice by adding in red or hot pink accessories (belt, shoes, jewelry, etc).

Hope you all enjoyed these style ideas!  I would love to hear what your favorite ways are to style a striped dress (hopefully there are some new ideas I can try!).  Have a great rest of your Wednesday :)
