Nothing says “patriotic” like navy and white stripes. For curvy girls, they can be intimidating (I have to admit these side panels helped). I paired this look with my new favorite red shoes from a recent Charlotte Russe Haul, and my new favorite BaubleBar earrings… which kind of have a starburst effect…. and a Bombshell cuff because..well.. sometimes you just want to feel like a Bombshell! I tied the look together with Red, White, and Blue makeup.. and… viola!… I have a glam 4th of July outfit that’s perfect for a night out celebrating our Independence!
This dress is from Banana Repiblic and is no longer available.. but here are some tips for picking out a flattering striped dress…
- Slimming side panels are our friend… like this one from Athleta
- Mix up the direction of the stripes so they are not totally horizontal… like this dress from ModCloth
- When in doubt.. belt it… like this Nautical one from The Limited
(Dress: Banana Republic, no longer available//Shoes: Charlotte Russe//Earrings: BaubleBar//Bracelet: BaubleBar)
