This striped dress from Closet London is a homage to the mod style of the 60’s with it’s stripes and swing-style shape. The diagonal stripes on this number are so flattering because they emphasize the smaller torso area while the vertical lines bring the eye down to elongate a women’s frame.  The bold red color is just the icing on the cake! I decided to add my vintage Gucci bag to continue this throwback vibe. This dress will be staying with me all through the fall and winter season because of the high collar.  I just need to add some layering pieces like a blazer, leather jacket, or tights to add some warmth. This dress is part of Closet London’s La Dolce Vita Collection which features classic pieces with a modern twist. Click here to see all this collection has to offer.  Come back on Monday to see the other piece that I’m styling from this collection.

Swing dresses are, in my opinion, so easy to wear because they can be dressed up or down, layered over, and can flatter almost any body type.  Take a look at some of my faves for this fall.  Just add some go-go boots and you are good to go! Happy Friday!
