Being a self-professed stripe-aholic, I think one of the most versatile pieces you can own for spring & summer is a perfect-fitting striped dress. This one in particular has such a fun shape (& the cutest cutout in the back!), plus it's just as easy to dress up with a blazer & heels as it is to dress down like I did here. If you're nervous about horizontal stripes having a "widening" effect, stick with a thinner width stripe and you'll be pleasantly surprised by how flattering they are!
What I'm wearing:
c/o ShopMamie dress (here), TinselTown Denim Couture jacket (via T.J. Maxx; similar here or here), Old Navy sandals (similar), Pulicati tote (via TJ Maxx; similar), Forever 21 fedora (similar), Madewell belt (similar), Forever 21 ring (similar), Bracelets: Vintage & c/o Poshlocket (here), Dockers aviators (similar), Nails: Essie Madison Ave-Hue, Lips: Maybelline Fifth Ave Fuschia
