I bought this black pinstripe dress during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and couldn’t wait to style it! I personally love menswear-inspired patterns. The cut of the dress with the cold shoulder and shirtdress detail, gives a new unexpected twist to the classic pinstripe. It’s the perfect piece to transition from summer to fall seasons. I can wear it with a turtleneck underneath and black knee length boots for the cooler weather.
I’m wearing a size 6 US, which fits like a 2-4. Topshop usually cut their sizes smaller than usual American size. I suggest to go a size up. The dress is currently on sale for $69.90. Awesome price!
The dress came with a self skinny belt. I opted for a wider leather belt to create an exaggerated cinched waist. The quilted details and hardware of the belt gives a bit of edge to this look. Also, I love how the midi length, with a few buttons unbuttoned, lets me show off these taupe suede sandals. I’ve had these for a few seasons and finally got to style them. The heels are a bit high, but I only take these babies out on special occasions.I styled this outfit with my new favorite pink quilted Chanel shoulder handbag. I love how unusual the shape is, kind of like an old-fashioned camera bag. Something you don’t find everyday from Chanel. The size is perfect for a workbag, holding all of my essentials. I guess that’s why I was so drawn to it. And the color!! Did I mention it was pink? It’s the most perfect blush pink that looks almost neutral, so it goes back to dusty pastels, denim and neutrals.
I can see myself wearing this outfit to work and a night out with Peter or friends. I know it’s high summer, but fall is around the corner. Time to stock up from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale before all the prices goes back up on August 7th.
