Landslide

IMG_5094With the days warming up and summer just around the corner, I find myself abandoning my spring florals and frequently opting for my summer staple—stripes! I love the unusual style of this  black and white striped dress. Placing stripes of differing sizes on the top and bottom of the dress creates a nice take on the traditional striped sundress. Since it’s black and white, I find the dress incredibly easy to change up! I’ve styled it a different way each time I’ve worn it—I’ve dressed it up with pearls and flats, I’ve worn it to school with a cardigan and a statement necklace, I’ve paired it with a clutch and heels for a date—there are endless possibilities! I love to add a bit of summer flair to the dress by throwing on my jean jacket. I think the cropped jacket works perfectly with the structured dress and it adds just a hint of menswear to the look. To keep things fun, I added a simple mint bangle and metallic gold flats.
