I am sort of obsessed with stripes. I have about five shirts in my closet that are either black/white or navy/white striped. I think stripes are essential in a wardrobe, because they are easy, and give off an effortless cool vibe (I am partial to the navy/white). Think Audrey Hepburn or any cool French (or not) woman you’ve seen rocking a stripe shirt or sweater.
Case in point:
So, I found this dress by MICHAEL STARS. It’s my second striped dress, but what I thought was really fun was the twist in the midsection. It is the perfect dress for the hot summer months, especially August, and it’s on sale for $69. Come early fall, I can add a leather or denim jacket and a pair of booties and it will still look seasonal. If a dress is not your thing, I very much like this basic sweater. Anyway you wear it, it can take basic and make it look cool.
