I’ve been a pretty big fan of wearing stripes lately. I’ve heard people say horizontal stripes can accentuate your figure in the wrong ways, however, I might just be in love with this polka dots and stripes combo.
Scott helped me pick out this dress a while ago, and I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to wear it.
Sunday night, I think I got it. Since this dress is very patterned, I only added 3 more elements to make the outfit.
1. Dress: Material Girl via Macy’s
2. Earrings: Betsy Johnson via Betsy Johnson Outlet
I love the sparkle and I love the bows.
3. Tights: (Textured) from Macy’s
*TIP: Pairing tights with a form fitting, busy patterned dress can help that accentuating problem I mentioned earlier. It also doesn’t hurt that tights provide an extra layer of flattening.
*DOUBLE TIP: When wearing tights, avoid folding them over – this will create extra lines. Instead, pull them up and wear high at or above your waist.
4. Boots: Urban Outfitters
These are one of my go-to pairs of comfortable boots I’ve managed to make acceptable to go out in. You can wear them up or rolled down (pictured).
I guess you could say the look I was going for is Fun + Funky.
Oh, there’s one more…
5. Wristlet: Express
