I’m going to say with confidence that this striped, off the shoulder dress is one of my favorite pieces. For some reason, I feel powerful in it. It may have something to do with the denim colors in the stripes. Call me superwoman when you see me in a nice pair of jeans! Nevertheless, “perfect” is the word that comes to mind when I first put this dress on. The color, light material, off the shoulder style and the details of the sleeves literally won me over.
I personally don’t believe in rules when it comes to style. A person should wear what they want to wear. One thing that is true in fashion is that optical illusion exist. If you want to come across looking “slimmer,” vertical lines always win. Vertical lines causes our eyes to focus up and down, rather across.
This dress could almost be worn anywhere. Simply switch out the shoes and accessories for different looks. I could wear some fresh white Nike Airforce Shoes with a white baseball cap. Throw my hair in a ponytail with some sunnies and I have a casual look perfect for running errands (with the kids).
I wore a similar dress here from the same store, but the stripes here on this one means everything. Which one do you prefer? Details below.
