Outfit Inspiration

If you like this budget-friendly frock then you're going to love the outfits we put together for inspiration. Read on to find out three stylish ways to wear this week's Fabulous Find:

Outfit #1: Stars & Stripes Forever

Product Info: Dress- Forever 21, Necklace- Deb, Sunglasses- Forever 21, Shoes- Converse, Belt- Mango

The Fourth of July is mere days away and although we've already covered Independence Day fashion, we couldn't help but create another look with our Fabulous Find -- this dress is just too perfect for the occasion!

First, add a red belt, which will help define the waistline and add a bright pop of color. Next, classic Converse sneakers not only incorporate the red, white and blue motif, but are the perfect footwear choice, whether you're spending the Fourth at a barbecue or watching the fireworks. Accessorize with an adorable star necklace and red Wayfayers for a stylish and practical holiday outfit.

Outfit #2: Trendy & Sophisticated

For a more dressy look, pair the dress with a crisp ivory boyfriend blazer, which gives a polished, yet low-key vibe. Sky-high yellow heels give this outfit a major dose of style and color, while the cutout leather clutch adds a stylish touch. Accessorize with some edgy fringe earrings and you'll have the perfect outfit for grabbing dinner and drinks on a balmy summer night.

Outfit #3: Mixed Prints

Our final outfit incorporates something we love here at CF -- mixing prints. For this look, we decided to pair the striped dress with a colorful floral infinity scarf.
