Dress: c/o Zalora, Jacket: Zara, Shoes: Steve Madden, Bag: Zara, Necklace c/o What the Frock?!

You can’t turn a corner this summer without running into a striped dress of some sort. Whether it is the maxi variety (as featured here), the t-shirt style, or the mini tank variety preferred by teens worldwide it seems to be as prevalent as skinny jeans and worn by just as many age groups and demographics (check out my ode to the striped shirt here). The beauty is that no matter your size or budget you can find one to fit. But aren’t horizontal a no-no? Not anymore! As long as the line of the dress skims the spots your most proud of and drapes over those not as revered then you’re good to go! Feel free to add a brown belt to your navy dress either cinching your natural waist to show the curves or sling it low around your hips to showcase a more boyish silhouette. Denim is a natural pairing for topping off this yacht-approved print but I chose to go with something a bit sunnier! Oh- and I’m in love with What the Frock’s?! new line of jewelry. They recently revamped the site and have all these great bobbles online and available for purchase! Have you picked up a striped dress yet? If not, what are you waiting for?!? Summer is almost over!
