Enjoying the rest of summer with this chic black and white nautical striped maxi dress with a scooped neck and racer back from Wet Seal.
A word of warning, the sizing on Wet Seal tends to cater to the Juniors set so, size up if you can or you might be taking a chance with a fit that might be a bit too snug – even if it’s extra large. In my experience, their XL often fits like a regular Medium to snug Large.
I tried my luck with the 2X, since the 1X sold out and am glad because it fits just perfectly and drapes pretty well. These dresses do tend to run a bit long but if you’re curvy, the length shortens considerably.
What I love about the quality of this striped maxi is that it isn’t slightly transparent like many of the striped dresses online and the knit has a bit of substance to it. And that’s a definite plus!
The dress will look fantastic with an asymmetric moto or biker jacket as it cools down and if you don’t want to get the jacket sweaty because the dress is sleeveless, just wear a little fitted T-shirt underneath.
Have to add that there’s a touch of Parisian Coco Chanel nautical chic to this dress which makes it all the more special for the fashionista…
