Stripes and patterns, something I was once told should never be worn together, a huge fashion faux pas. Well, I don’t like fashion rules of do’s and don’ts and think that adding different patterns with stripes without going overboard adds a little extra edge to your outfit.
I was standing in line to get a Sweetgreen salad last month and saw this woman wearing a long red and white striped dress and I loved it the moment my eyes spotted it. I immediately started googling different ways to try and track down something similar. (Side note: I swear I find most of my fashion inspo while standing in the endless lunch lines at Sweetgreen in Soho.) Anyways, I found this dress and got it a little smaller because I knew that I would never wear it closed but more as a jacket or duster coat. I added a little pop of leopard print to make the outfit a little more fun.
