    April 6th, 2014Alanna NelsonDresses, Our Fashion Choice

    When striped dresses strolled down the runway last year, I loved not only the power that black and white brought to the catwalk, but the creative ways designers used lines to make a statement. The trend is still going strong, with great choices for spring 2014.
    Take a peek at these six dresses that use stripes stylishly.

    Betsy and Adam strategically place white stripes on a sheer black over dress to create a modern hourglass figure for everyone! Details like the striped cap sleeves and an A line skirt add a touch of whimsy to the crisp white strokes.

    While they may not be parallel stripes, you can’t deny the power of line with this scoop neck frock. Comfortable knit fabric gives even the most straight figure an hourglass shape. I’ve shown the salmon pink version here, but if you’re looking for more drama, the black and white color way won’t let you down.
