Bold New Ways to Wear Black and White Stripes

Bold black and white stripes  have been around for a couple of seasons, but things get old quickly so designers have decided to shake thing up once again, this time turning stripes every which way imaginable. This Dorothy Perkins mix up stripe dress is a great example.

This side tie stripe matte jersey dress from Ralph Lauren wraps up your figure and give you a slimming shape. This is a great dress for work or an evening out and it’s the perfect length too.

This lovely striped fit and flare dress has a typical horizontal pattern but the shadow stripes and knit detail make it totally fresh.  I love the fit, length and all around versatility of this dress.

Angled Stripes

Stripes turned slightly sideways gives this feminine sleevless maxi a dramatic feel. This is a great dress for summer entertaining or for just enjoying your weekend with a coffee on the porch.

Twisty Stripes
I love an interesting spin on a classic dress and think I may have to run right out and buy this very cute striped t-shirt dress. It’s so hard to find clothes that are casual, but a tad different, but with the asymmetrical neckline and twisted hemlime, this dress fits the bill.

Two Way Stripes

This  alluring  wrap front maxi is one hot dress. Love the opposing stripes; they get your attention and make make the body look angular and lean. The slit ( kind of Angelina Jolie) is a nice way to look sexy without having it all hang out.

  1. I don’t much care for black ‘n’ white. I worked in a casino for a few years, and that combo always reminds me of work! Also, I find that black, white, or the combo washes me out and ages me. However, some people look great in this look. I save black for shoes, pants, and skirts, and always wear color up top.
