At this mid-point through the long days of summer, it’s still time for shorts, skirts, and casual dresses. And casual dresses are very much on trend this summer. How many casual dresses do you have in your closet? How about a bright striped dress to add a little color to this time of year?
This dress is part of the WhoWhatWear collection at Target. Strolling through Target a month or so ago, I spotted this bright striped dress. I kept looking at it wondering where I might wear it. When I saw another blogger styling it, I had to go back and pick one up for myself! I’m so glad I did. Something about a vibrant stripe just catches your eye, right?

When I saw this dress on Andrea at Living on Cloud Nine, I went straight to Target to get one! Here is the link to Andrea styling this super cute dress. She is a white blond with a beautiful tan and it looks amazing on her! It’s actually surprising that more of us don’t style the same pieces more often, but that just goes to show you how everyone has a different eye for fashion and there are SO many ways to dress and look good at any age! Many thanks to Andrea for allowing me to share her style in this post. Be sure to check out her blog–so many fashion ideas!!
In reading about fashion from WhoWhatWhere, they suggested this dress as an option for July 4th. Now wouldn’t that be fun? But you don’t have to save the bright stuff for that or Cinco de Mayo or any other holiday. The bright stripes can look great any time you want to add some fun color. Of course, this one is most likely a summer dress! This dress is no longer available (sigh) but you can see some other bright stripe dress ideas here.
You may remember these cute fuchsia wedges from this post. They turned out to be the perfect color with this dress! But a neutral heel would work well, too. Of course, they are no longer available (honestly, things sell out SO fast, it’s hard to keep up!), but I linked to some other bright pink shoes.
I just happened to have the hot pink envelope purse, and it went perfectly! Don’t you just love it when that happens?!
I’m loving these inexpensive hot pink tassel earrings! We all know the tassel style won’t be popular forever, so it’s always a good idea to find similar inexpensive versions to match specific outfits. But I will be able to wear these with other outfits, so they’re a good purchase.
I am really liking the “red lip” lately, so added a swoosh of red lipstick. I really like the way it pops and brings out the red tones in the pattern. Red lips somehow seem more festive, don’t they?
If you don’t already have one in your closet, pick up a bright stripe dress for your next party or casual event. Bright colors can really perk up your style and your outlook.
