3 Ways to Rock a Versatile Black-and-White Striped Dress

It makes sense financially to get the most out of the pieces you have in your closet rather than adding more to it (that is what my mom calls getting "bang for your buck"). A black-and-white striped dress is a versatile, worthwhile addition to any wardrobe. Here's how to create three separate looks using the same dress.

3 Ways to Wear a Striped Dress

It's important to fill your closet with versatile pieces that you can wear anytime, anywhere, even when the temperature starts to drop. A simple and inexpensive shift dress (this one was less than $20) is a great investment, because shifts are flattering on most people and are very comfortable. While some may shy away from stripes, this trendy print adds interest to any outfit—and if black-and-white is too boring for you, you can try red or navy stripes instead. Below are three different black-and-white striped dress looks you can achieve with items you already have in your closet.

1. Layers
By adding layers, you can extend the wear of a summer dress into fall and spring. Add a jacket, sweater, or scarf over the dress, and pair the look with your favorite boots. Don't shy away from using the layers to add some color to your outfit. You can create completely different looks by mixing different layering pieces over the same base dress.

2. Sporty casual
You can easily create a comfortable, sporty-casual look perfect for weekend outings or running errands with a black-and-white striped dress. Throw on a ball cap and your favorite runners, and you are good to go! If it's a bit chilly, tie a sweatshirt around your waist.

Dressing up a black-and-white striped dress for a date night or a fun night with the gals is easy. The shift dress is the perfect canvas to showcase your favorite necklaces, bracelets, and flats.
