The Classic Dress Trend to Break Out Again


Collage Vintage

When you think of quintessential fashion staples this time of year, you might think of candy color hues such as lavender, or even florals—groundbreaking, we know. However, there’s nothing quite like a striped dress for spring.

While the fashion industry may have had its spotlight on polka dots (call it the Jacquemus effect), the striped print will always be a crowd favorite. More interesting than a solid, while easy to style, this classic pattern is incredibly versatile. Depending on the type of stripes you choose, you can channel any aesthetic from French-girl chic to business casual.

A striped dress makes for the perfect throw-on-and-go piece for this season. All you need is a pair of cool sandals and the perfect bag to complete the look. Wear a sundress on your next vacation getaway or something a little more formal for a wedding.

From classic black and white to colorful hues, these striped dresses add just the right amount of visual intrigue you'll want to show off.
