I live by the rule that beauty is pain. Meaning, I’ll wear a cute dress regardless of whether or not it is weather-appropriate. That’s exactly what happened the first time I wore my new sleeveless striped dress. It was the middle of February, the dead of winter and a freezing 6ºC. But hey, no pain no gain, right?
You may think I’m crazy for wearing a short dress in winter, but to this day, I don’t regret my clothing choices. For me, a cute dress justifies everything – and the sleeveless striped dress is the epitome of cute. Wear it with a button-up shirt, a turtleneck top, a woolly jumper… anything goes!

Sleeveless striped dress
Whether it’s summer or winter, I style the sleeveless striped dress the same way. I tuck a basic H&M Knit Mock Turtleneck Jumper underneath the dress, pull on a pair of light grey Uniqlo Women Calf Socks and finish off the look with my trusty Nike Air Force 1 trainers. This winning combination is a low-key monochrome look that’s perfect to wear on a casual day out.
Shop the look
Of course, there are many alternative ways to style the sleeveless striped dress. For example, you can wear it on its own without a shirt underneath and pair it with heels or sandals for a more summery look. Thanks to its neutral white colour, it works like a charm as a simple base or a blank palette for subsequent styling. Now, your turn. How would you wear the sleeveless striped dress?
