I am a confessed stripe lover.
Vertical stripe dress Zara - Black patent flats Viascar - Black padded bucket bag Love Moschino
However most of the striped garments I 
own are horizontal, so I jumped at the idea of
trying the vertical stripe when I saw this dress.
It looked marvellous on the hanger. Not so when worn.
Black cardigan INC International Concepts
I felt so odd in it that I'm done after just one wear.

Stripes are generally flattering but these are too wide. They create an odd visual effect. I agree with you that it doesn't look especially good.

Stripes are one of my favorite too! I like the wide stripes & think belted to show off your waist they would look great!


I love stripes typically, but I can see what you mean about this one. If the silhouette had stylelines or princess fitted seaming with smaller stripes it would be nice. You look great though. <3

Shame you aren't loving it, but great it can go and free up wardrobe space for something else you love to wear :)

Thinking about it I don't know if I own many vertical stripes myself..I can only think of one pinstripe shirt!

I think you look lovely, but I can see that the dress would drive me nuts too - it looks like it's slipping off to one side. Yup, sometimes "one & done" is all a garment gets!

It's a fun look for sure, but I agree that there's something a bit off about how this dress looks when worn. I think that adding the cardigan improved the situation a good deal and wonder now how it would look, say, with a fitted blazer and a belt, to further break the wide vertical stripes up, as I think that's why the cardi helped in the way that it did.

Do not throw this dress away Lorena. It is so unique. I love it on you too. As you know I also love stripes. Is that Vanilla or Marshmallow making an appearance?
