How To Wear: Striped Dresses

What do women really want is to get easier clothes on. Today I am going to show you some simple, but very stylish ways of how to wear a striped dress this year. Keep the comfort and retro look with one of the following designs. Thanks to the bold horizontal stripes you can wear minimum accessories. But you can always mix it up with bright pops of colors, as well as with gold accessories and jewelry on. This piece is incredibly versatile, as you can wear it from office to weekends, from beach to business meetings, etc. This trendy piece looks effortlessly chic and boho inspired. There is something retro inspired in this look, I personally love the navy trend of those 1960's styles and 90's basic touches. Some of you might think, that if we speak about stripes, then it must be either black and white or white and navy, though we see lots of other color and width variations. Anyway, how about wearing an eye-catchy modern and minimalistic inspired dress this year?
