Snapped: Stripes in Paris

While some people may find themselves shying away from bold patterns and stripes, this ankle sweeping dress proves that (especially when done in neutrals), stripes can have a life far away from your typical poplin button-down. Seen on Olivia in a beige, grey and black colorway, the Zara pleated dress is kept even more tonal by layering it with a black Tibi turtleneck, black Elie Saab fringe jacket and black Jimmy Choot boots. The only other pop of color and print is found within an Elie Saab geometric handbag keeping the look balanced and sophisticated. Want to play up the stripes a bit more? Pair it with a knit in another tonal print with similar colorways.
