Fabulous Find of the Week: Kmart Striped Dress


All things striped are hot for spring, and we aren’t just talking about the classic black-and-white or navy-and-white varieties. After being featured heavily in Spring ’13 runway shows like Dolce & Gabbana and Temperly London, bold and colorful stripes are a must-try trend for spring.

So for this week’s Fabulous Find, we picked an inexpensive and super-stylish multi-colored striped dress from Kmart. Not only is this frock on-trend for spring, but it’s also ridiculously versatile — it’s the type of dress you can wear from day to night simply by switching up a few accessories.

    I love all three outfits, but especially the first one, I would swap out the belt for a thicker one, for curvier bodies.

    That dress is so cute! I love the stripes and how you can wear with neutrals, blues and pinks! Love the first and the 3rd look. I think it would also be great to wear in the winter with tights, booties, and a cute jacket. I have been trying to buy more dresses like this with sleeves so they are wearable all year round with the right shoes and accessories.

    Shoes in the first outfit, purse in the second outfit, and scarf in the third outfit. I love them :) Also, Revlon Balm Stain is pretty awesome!

    I love the way you paired that scarf with that dress! Mixing prints is so carefree and rebellious to me, and can go wrong really fast, but you definitely hit the bull’s eye with this one.

    Great post!!
