Nothing like a little 90s flair, eh? I found this pinstriped dress at a thrift store – originally almost floor length and accompanied by a long matching blazer. It’s heavy polyester – from a classic power suit in its initial form.
The length didn’t quite suit me, so I tore off the bottom. When I tear my dresses and skirts, I often make them too short accidentally. However, there’s no going back, and I couldn’t part with this! So it’s primarily a winter dress – the heavy material suits the cold, and it layers wonderfully with a long sleeve shirt and tights.
The high neckline is classy, but the cut is perfectly body skimming – an excellent balance. I like to make this look a bit funky, often pairing it with a headscarf and a bold lip.
It’s subtle, but still a bit of a statement, so I keep everything around it simple. I like to add other long lines with it, mimicking the pinstripes, whether in the form of a necklace or a scarf.
Boots, loafers, and sneakers all work equally well – a true testament to this dress’s versatility.
I found some fun 90s style dresses similar to this one through ASOS marketplace – one big floral print and one small. You could also have a look on Etsy, and don’t be afraid to comb the racks of your local thrift store – these gems often take a bit of digging.
Love, calm, & care –
