Nothing dresses up a comfortable, casual dress more than adding accessories does. I added a belt and some platform sandals to this tent of a dress to give it some shape and structure for a day at work. It worked! That’s why a striped dress like this is a great staple–it’s neutral enough that any color can be added to it gracefully, and it always looks classic and fresh, even if you’ve worn it many times (like I have). This dress looks great with a statement necklace and yellow belt, a vest and dorky pose, and with a cardigan and boots, like I plan to wear it when the weather finally turns sane.
Try playing with your striped dresses to beat the summer doldrums with accessories!
