A striped cotton dress is not a trend anymore. It has become a must-have for any wardrobe. It is an essential thing that you must have. And for good reasons too! There is nothing easier or chicer than styling a striped dress. You can try so many colors – the choice is virtually endless. Even black and white can look gorgeous.
Classic, but bold, the black and white combo can look good throughout the day. For this fall, you can easily pump up your outfit by wearing a shirtdress, a silk skirt, or a leather jacket. You can even wear a denim jacket and look good in it.
Striped Dress with Sweater or Jacket
There are many other ways of wearing a striped dress. For instance, you can wear the dress with a skirt, and add a slider and roll-neck sweater if there is chill in the air. Just look at the picture of this outfit below. The green jacket complements the green stripes of this dress so well. You can be sure to look good in this outfit. I personally like the look of this one. All you have to do is just take off your jacket and wrap it around the hips when it is too hot to wear it.
You may also clash or mix stripes on stripes with opposing lines. Black and white lines can be paired so well with bright colors, such as hot pink, orange, and scarlet and many others. Or you can contrast white and red stripes with your nude clutch. Be creative. Play with the colors and experiment, to find out what works for you the best. Another option is to get color and width variety.
Striped Shirtdress with Ripped Jeans
You may also wear animal prints or floral patches. Go for a ripped jeans and heels combo and wear it with your slouchy striped shirt or hooped sweater. The possibilities are virtually limitless.
