Spring Trend: Nautical Striped Dresses

Posted by Cathy | Thursday February 24, 20117 comments

Blue and white nautical stripes are a must-have addition to any stylish wardrobe.  It's a quintessential Spring style that we saw once again on the Paris Spring 2011 Runways.  Now here's how to translate the Parisian runways to real life:

Weekend Shopping
J Crew dress $78, J Crew belt $32.50, Steve Madden 'Genisis' $89.95

For the ultimate in weekend chic, pair a casual striped shirtdress with a brown belt and neutral wedge - comfy and classic.

Lunch Date
Anthropologie dress $88, Aldo sandal 'Laurencette' $70, AE Denim jacket $49.50, Forever 21 bracelets $4.80 each, Forever 21 necklace $1.50

A striped maxi dress and cute gladiators is a statement on its own.  But throw a vibrant bangle or two, an anchor necklace and a jean jacket and you've got a California-ready look.

At Work
Madewell dress 'Anchors Away' $95, Anthropologie blazer $128, Corso Como 'Delicious' $129, Michael Kors watch $180

For work, pair a striped shirtdress with a blazer, not-too-high red pumps, and an oversized watch.

At Play
BCBG dress $298, GUESS 'Hondo' $99, BCBG bracelet $48

For a night on the town, a form fitting minidress, sky high heels, and a statement bracelet will guarantee you'll get noticed.

Will you be wearing striped dresses this Spring?  How would you style it?

I'm also having serious shoe lust over these sparkly Guess heels

Love the look, but hate that there's no way I can wear it. Horizontal stripes aren't my current best friends. But maybe some day :-)

This is SO my thing. I also would really like a pair of wedge espadrilles for this season.

I am in love with the little lunch date outfit - so cute!
I agree mumaluv, I have to be careful with horizontal stripes.

I LOVE this look! However, it's not very flattering on me so I have to skip it. Too bad...
