Today is officially the first day of summer! With the third chapter of summer dress week I am focusing on everything stripe. When it comes to striped dresses, I adore almost all stripe layouts, fabrics, and silhouettes. From an easy cotton tank dress, to a tiered linen maxi, to a more elevated deconstructed shirt dress in silk, the more stripe dresses, the better! You can click over to a few of my more recent posts featuring striped dresses – in a kimono sleeved linen striped number, a belted silk piece, and a more simple weekend wear option, not to mention today’s corresponding striped dress post! I am breaking down my favorite striped dress picks by price point, as well as highlighting how I would style my favorite in each price bucket. No matter your dress budget for stripes this summer, there are gorgeous options!
