Cash, Credit, Debit… The Black and White Stripe Dress

As I’m sure you’re all aware, the sixties are a big fashion influence this season. Marc Jacobs was inspired by mod style, sending a parade of bold black and white lines down his New York runway; which subsequently kicked off one of Spring 2013’s biggest trends. Black and white stripes are now absolutely everywhere, and the quickest (and easiest) way to get the look into your wardrobe is with a simple T-shirt dress. Avoid the obvious Breton-stripe options, however, and go for a design that mixes both horizontal and vertical stripes instead. Here are three of the best options, all available online now:

Cash: Motel smock dress, £45 and $78 USA
Credit: Marc by Marc Jacobs striped dress, £385 and $398 USA
Debit: Ella Moss jersey dress, £117 or $178 USA

Wear your black and white striped dress one of two ways: either in homage to Edie Sedgwick – with black tights, flat pointed-toe pumps and lashings of liquid eyeliner – or layer with crystal jewellery, a bright leather jacket and studded ankle boots. The choice is totally up to you…

    And obviously the one I covet is Marc Jacobs. Sigh…
