I've said it before and I'll say it again: I'm addicted to stripes. I can't get enough of this print, but can you blame me? Stripes can be worn for any occasion, any time of the year. 

So for this week's Fabulous Find, I chose a striped dress from a store that's a go-to for every girl on a budget: Forever 21. Between the t-shirt silhouette, cutout back, and unique striped pattern, this dress stands out in the best possible way. And the under $13 price tag? Well, that's just the icing on the cake.

Scroll down to check out this Fab Find, as well as three chic ways to style a striped t-shirt dress:

Outfit Inspiration

If you like this cheap and chic dress, 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: Classroom Chic

Product Info: Dress- Forever 21, Bag- Target, Belt- Charlotte Russe, Watch- La Mer, Shoes- ALDO

Head to class in style by pairing our Fab Find with sleek black oxfords. T-shirt dresses are loose-fitting, but if you prefer a defined silhouette, wrap a braided belt around your waist. Carry your notebooks in an oversized tote; this teal one adds a nice pop of color. Lastly, a leopard print watch adds a playful yet practical touch to the look.

Outfit #2: Fashionable for Fall

Once the crisp autumn air arrives, rock this striped dress with an olive green utility jacket and taupe-colored booties. This outfit is comfy and casual, but add a little sparkle with a layered gold necklace and spiked ear jackets. Finish your look with a fall-appropriate manicure.

Outfit #3: Too Cool for School

This is one of those outfits that could work for day or night. Edge up this dress with a pair of statement-making platform combat boots. Store your must-haves in a burgundy crossbody bag with a cool asymmetrical zipper, then accessorize with a bunch of midi rings. For the finishing touch, swipe on a shiny lip gloss.
