Everyone needs a striped dress in their closet. Stripes are timeless and effortless, such an easy piece to wear that requires little thought. For me, the less thought the better!

I know, there’s nothing novel about stripes for Fourth of July weekend, and especially red stripes, but for me this swingy, flowy dress stands out in the crowd. I really love the apron style with an open back. If you know me, I’m kind of a free bird, I don’t like to feel too constrained in my clothing, hence going sans bra! It’s just sort of what I like to do come summer. But you could easily pair this dress with a pretty bralette if going braless is not your thing. And there are so many shoe options, pair with flat sandals, espadrilles, a wedge or even the on trend, white sneaker. My daughter didn’t capture any full body shots but I’m barefoot in these photos 🙂
This dress is the perfect piece that will take you all through summer. Think farmer’s markets, the beach, bbq’s or happy hour with the girls. I found this dress at
I think it’s sold out because I can’t find it online anymore. For reference, I just bought this a couple weeks ago. (I’ve linked to some of my other favorite stripe options below.)
I hope you have a great holiday weekend? What are you up to? Comment below, I’d love to hear from you. I think we’ll park it at the beach one day, pool one day and hopefully tons of bbq at some point.
