Striped dresses are every where at the moment. Actually any dress is always trendy. A dress is so ideal to wear in the winter. If it is too cold, wear a legging instead of tights. And a cardigan over it, or a jacket, looks always good on any dress. And if you are just as often cold as I am, you can also wear a shirt and a basic shirt with sleeves underneath. Yes you read it right, four layers! I wear four layers in winter. In addition, you can wear every shoe or boot under a striped dress like this. Every style fits with it. It’s a shame that so many women see dresses as a party outfit and not as a daily garment. You can style a dress as casual as you want it to be. This is the second dress I bought from Gerben’s Christmas package.
Why I wore this striped dress with a blazer
This dress is quite long. Because I have a long upper body it doesn’t look good when I wear nothing on such a long dress. A belt just below the waist would do the trick, but I wanted to wear a jacket. A short jacket would only accentuate the length of my upper body and a long vest would make it more dull. A blazer that falls just below the hips “breaks” the length so that everything falls back into proportion.
Striped dress in burgundy, pink and blue
The trend of this season is of course to wear your blazer with a belt. This translucent one fits perfectly with the look. And I added two black hair pins to the belt. The dress needs nothing more then that. I do not know if you already have seen enough of these boots, but they are just so good! If you can spend it, invest in some good quality black leather boots!
