Summer Chic: Striped Strapless Dress

Summer stripes are fitting as the end of summer draws close; refreshingly cool and nautically inspired, a striped strapless dress offers a chic summertime look on land or at sea!

Stripes, a stable in every wardrobe, get a fresh take when in a strapless, cinched waist dress (1).  A co-ordinating scarf in analogous colors (2) i.e. they are next to each other on the color wheel, adds a dimension of color to the ensemble, while the teal sandals (3) complete the look.
1, 2, 3 Chic!

How I Styled It?
If I could offer one word of advice for summer styling, it would have to be simple.  Simplicity is key to looking and staying cool in the heat, and one way to achieve this is by the color of the fabric.
Blues tones are cool and visually, they offer the same same refreshing appeal.  Limit color variations to one or two, using white as a neutral canvas for the look.
Ground the ensemble with a pair of sandals in a bold silhouette and eye-catching shade of the same color family to create a 1, 2, 3 Chic Style!
