Read on to know how you can elevate your striped dress to an all-new level of chic with just the right mix of accessories.
Let Stripes Take Centre Stage
Make the stripes the star of your ensemble by pairing it with understated, or neutral-coloured accessories. Whether you go with a scarf, belt, or a handbag, choose earthy tones to let the stripes be the focal point. You can choose accessories in black, white, tan, or brown. This will make your striped dress stand out and give it the attention it deserves.
Colour it Bright
Adding a dash of colour to your striped dress will heighten its visual interest. You could go with bold accessories in contrasting colours to make your stripes pop, this is especially good with dark coloured stripes. If you don’t want to go overboard you can always pick accessories in different shades of the same colour or go with complementary hues.
Give Off Some Beachy Vibes
Stripes are fundamentally so beachy that you can play it to your advantage to give your ensemble a picnicky charm. For a relaxed styling go with mules or flip-flops, big hoops, beaded chain or bracelet, a nice colourful tote and sunglasses. For a night out just add a belt, throw in an embellished stole, go for a layered necklace and switch to kitten heels and a shimmery sling.
Don’t Forget the Jacket
Wearing your striped dress for a formal event? Go with a cardigan and if it’s a casual day out add layers with a nice denim jacket. Stripes and denim jacket are a style staple, and you can never go wrong with it. While you can choose to go with a solid coloured jacket, you don’t have to always stick to it. To create interest, go for printed jackets as they can add some element of colour to the overall look. Not a jacket person? Throw in a checked shirt to add some contrast, wear a broad belt, gladiator sandals and an edgy pair of drop earrings.
Chic and supremely casual, a striped dress can also be worn to work if you know how to style it right. From chunky jewellery, white sneakers to colourful bags, you can go with anything to dress up or down your striped dress. Versatile and an everyday style, a striped dress is the perfect outfit to pick on days when you’re too lazy to make up your mind but want to look your best. Just let your creativity lead the way and you should be able to add some pizzazz to your whole look.
