10th Commandment: July 2


Hive & Honey Lizzie Stripe Dress ($69)

Ah, the striped dress, my summer staple.  Since it’s Fourth of July week, I thought I would feature a casual Two Ways post.  After all, even though it may feel like it sometimes, we don’t spend all of our time at work.

This dress is black and white, I also found this flare skirt dress in the same palette.  For longer sleeves, Banana Republic has a striped dress with a scoop back, but it runs a bit small.  I also found this rather unique Calvin Klein dress with a sheer yoke.

Prefer blue and white?  This Style & Co. dress has a sporty look, I also like this cap-sleeve dress from Lulu’s.  Linea also has a 3/4 sleeve stripe dress.  Want a maxi-dress?  This Splendid t-shirt dress is on sale at Nordstrom.

Plus-size? Try this Three Dots flare skirt dress or this Spense short dress.  Petite? Gap striped Henley dress and this blurred stripe dress from LOFT.  Tall?  Try this brighter blue dress from Banana Republic.

    I ordered this dress and loved it! Ended up returning because the stripes were slightly too severe for me, but if you’re looking for that, it’s such a comfortable and flattering dress.

    I bought this striped navy dress (with sleeves!) and love it.
    Only need a thin slip underneath.

      Where did you buy your slip? I’m looking for one that’s reasonably priced, ideally form-fitting but not shaping.

    I bought a similar dress at target, it’s navy with white stripes, and I love it! It’s my first ever maxi dress and I can’t wait to wear it.
