Five Minute Fashion Fix: Leggings with Striped Dresses

The next in my Five Minute Fashion Fix series is not a surprise for followers of my blog. I love stripes. It is no secret. Anyone can wear them, from the skinniest minnie to the most Rubenesque of women. The key is to pick the right type of stripe. If you are slimmer, you can totally rock a wider stripe. If you want something a little more subtle, try something like these striped dresses from Old Navy.

Banana Republic Necklace
J.Crew Blazer (find similar ones at Express and Old Navy)
Old Navy dress (Gap tee underneath)
Forever 21 leggings
DSW boots

Remember what the base of this outfit would be. Just leggings and a tee. Easy peasy.

Another variation on the same theme would be the same dress in a different color pattern, worn with the wide belt from yesterday and my new heeled Miller boots from J.Crew. Now I know that those boot are not necessarily frugal (ahem, not frugal at all), but I believe you can find similar boots at Target or just do the flats as above. And for me, they fit the criteria of being super comfortable because of the internal platform (a key to comfortable heels).

Old Navy Dress
H&M belt
Cocomae leggings
J.Crew Miller Motorcycle boots

Five Minute Fashion Fix tip of the day: Make friends with a 1) wide belt, 2) blazer and 3) boots. They won't let you down!

Chime in, what do you think?
