Since the skirt made a major comeback this season, my dresses have been suffering an identity crisis. You see, it’s so easy to make a dress look like a skirt, and my dresses have been forced to go undercover.
You saw the transformation of a Marc New York print dress yesterday. For casual Friday today, I wanted a look with a swingy stripe skirt. Since I don’t own one, I created the look with a polka dot t-shirt and a swingy stripe dress instead.

I love the polka dots and stripes together 🙂
They do come together nicely, right? Thanks for stopping by!
Fabulous combo, love dots and stripes!
Thanks for stopping by, Tara! Dots and stripes do make for a snazzy combo.
Nice take on the dots and stripes ; )
Thanks, Sing. Trying to work with what I have…or make what I have work overtime 🙂
I love this combo you can't even tell its a dress. So, is the trick to tie the t-shirt in the back (small knot) like
So glad to hear that! #FashionUndercover. I prefer to tie a small knot in the back, so the front appears sleek and clean. I have also tied the knot in the front, though, and tucked it to hide it. It just depends on the final look you may want.
I love the dots and stripes combo.
You done it very well again.
Hey my friend! Thanks!
Love the pop of red! I rarely mix patterns because I feel like they might overwhelm me, but you've done it beautifully here. It seems like the key is to stay within similar color palettes and varying pattern sizes.
Really? I always find that what works for you all, works for me. Are we the same height?
Yeah, you're absolutely right. To avoid going overboard with the mixing and matching, staying within similar color palettes and varying pattern sizes are great rules to follow indeed.
Oh this is a great way to get away with wearing a strapless to work! Very clever.
So true! Cover it up for work is a great plan. Thanks for stopping by!
This is a FUN look. And the contrasting patterns with the swirl of the "skirt"–it's just FUN.
Thanks, Terri! It's that swirl in the skirt that instantly attracted me when I first spotted this dress.
