This year has been all about new takes on the classic blue and white striped shirt.
When I first tried this blue and white striped shirt dress on, I opted for the “granny-chic” look (a term coined by Vogue this summer), pairing it with trainers. But as soon as my dad said I look like a nurse on her way to the NHS, I swapped my kicks for heels. Slightly nautical and slightly mannish; a trend that was once reserved for blokey office attire has been reincarnated and reinvented into pieces that are slowly but surely taking over my wardrobe. Over the last few months, I’ve built up a collection of stripy shirts that rivals my own boyfriend’s. But today, my first fore ray into the shirt-dress realm.
I’m currently coveting (and obsessing over) this blue and white striped shirt dress from Jolly Chic, which is only Dhs345! (Shop it now and enter “milli” at the checkout for 10% off the entire Jolly Chic website.) Also linked below, these oh so sassy rose gold frames, from Beach City (only Dhs150!).
