In yesterday's blog post, I explained the style challenge I was set by Voucher Codes where I was given a set amount of budget to purchase striped clothes to create three looks. Look One saw me wear two striped items in one outfit. I'm posting Look Three tomorrow which involves a bit of lace. For now, here is Look Two and I would say that this outfit is more "me" and I have sort of stuck to my usual style. This blue and white stripy dress is by MotelRocks and with it I wore my (very) old Topshop blouse and added a thick ribbon under the collar. I thought about putting collar tips on instead but I prefer the neck tie. To give it the fun factor, I've styled it with my trusty ol' Minnie Mouse watch and some strawberry shaped sunnies from Primark. Why not!
The dress is currently in the sale from £38.00 to £22.00! The upper part of the dress is fairly ditted and the skirt piece is flared. It's made from a stretch cotton which gives is that extra comfort meaning you can layer up with shirts and blouses without it feeling like the dress is suffocating you! Although it would probably be best to wear a shirt where the buttons are concealed under the button stand like this one, other wise the buttons will show under the dress. In terms of making this an affordable staple piece, you can wear the dress on it's own and again during winter with by layer up with a shirt underneath so this is something that can be worn all year round. I love how the dress has been styled on the ASOS model, it's plain and simple but the boots and bare legs give it that edge. Would look awesome in the Summer, I'll give this look a go when the weather becomes much warmer!
