While in J.Crew on my mission to buy dots, I was also drawn to the stripe button-front dress, which had been marked down so low that it would have a final price of $25 (orig. $88). Okay. I didn't plan to buy stripes and I may not need more stripes, but who couldn't use more stripes?
To prove to you (and mostly to myself) that this additional stripe dress deserved a spot in my wardrobe, I consulted the Fashion Thesaurus.
Three looks with the stripe dress:
1. Casual. On Saturday, I wore the dress as shown below to run a few errands.
|Dress—J.Crew, Belt—Banana Republic Factory Store, |
Shoes—Michael Kors via Marshalls (jelly version)
Bag—Vintage via Borough Vintage, Earrings—Anthropologie Golden Child Danglers
2. Preppy Chic. Tis the season for mixing and matching. Plaid sure looks good with stripes.
|Shirt—Old Navy, Dress—J.Crew, Bag—Marina Rinaldi via family,|
Shoes—Michael Kors via Macy's (similar), Earrings—Kendra Scott Danielle
3. Classic with a twist. Red is reliable when paired with navy and white. A leopard skinny belt adds an additional splash of interest.
