Plantain OWOP Round Up - 5 Ways To Wear A Stripey Dress In Autumn
Woo-hoo I wore Plantain for a whole week! It was a great challenge to try and wear something from the same pattern every day for a week. The two items I had were my stripy dress and my stripey tee. Those keen sighted among you may notice that the dress isn't quite the same as the one from the original post, the first one shrunk in the wash and was too short to wear without flashing my knickers. So I cut off the bottom and added a pleated skirt instead. I think I actually prefer the second version any way. I had only two plantains so I had to be inventive about how to wear them.
Since I made my stripy summer dress so late in the year, I wanted to think of some ways to wear it in the Autumn any way so this week was a perfect excuse.
my circle skirt, so it looks more like a top and skirt combo. I kept my sandals on with this because it was warm but you could easily exchange those for something to keep your tootsies toasty.
I also paired my dress with a Chambray shirt and just left the skirt part showing. You could wear any t-shirt over it too to make it look like another skirt top combo. The oxford shoes were actually perfect for the weather, warm enough in the morning and not too hot in the afternoon. You could easily wear this outfit with tights though if it were even cooler.
For my fourth outfit I slipped some leggings on. Such a simply way to extend the life of a summer dress.
And finally a wore it under a colourful knit and belt. You could easily warm it up even more with tight rather than bare legs.
So there you go, 5 ways to wear a summery stripy dress in the Autumn. I really enjoyed the challenge of wearing one pattern 7 ways. What have you been up to for Owop? I would love to see. Leave a link below and I'll have a look. Zoe xx
