The Look: Urban Ultramarine

stripe maxi dress style

Stripes are pretty much like the bread and butter of the fashion world; they are always appetizing, timeless and it's those extra ingredients that make them extra special.


Vibrant stripes are HUGE this season and today I've given them a quirky, urban edge with Adidas trainers and retro sunglasses...

Dress: Cotton On (Sold out, similar here)
Trainers: Adidas Originals (Get them here)
Sunglasses: Jeepers Peepers (Similar here)
Jewellery: Lovisa (Similar necklace here)
Clutch: Tony Bianco (Similar here)

Newsflash: I've fallen off my regular bohemian train and am trying something a bit more sporty. Enter my newest obsession: vibrant stripes. As seen rocking the runway at Missoni, Prada and Moschino, thicker and more abstract stripe prints are set to be huge! Being the poor  bargain girl I am, I truly discovered the luxe for less version with this $10 Cotton On dress. Unfortunately, it's sold out, but this $26 ASOS piece is a total steal too!

A jazzed up my striped look with my new marble jewellery pieces. You may remember my absolute love for anything marble from my jewellery trends piece and since then, I went on an all-out hunt for some of my own marble goodies! These Lovisa goodies cost a whole $11, which, is cheaper than a Dominos pizza! If you can't tell, I've been on a full on bargain haul lately!

If you're after some vibrant stripe bargains, I've searched far and wide to find you the luxe for less:

1. Playsuit, Boohoo  2. Clutch, Lily & Co  3. Top, Missguided  4. Shirt, Staple The Label  5. Shorts, David Jones  6. Scarf, Agent Ninetynine

If you thought I'd dumped the whole boho thing, fear not! There's plenty more crochet and dream catchers to come. But fashion is fun and I love to mix things up!

  32. Stripes for life, Rachel! LOL! I love the whole look; maxi dress with sneakers. Very effortlessly chic and cool. May I know how you managed to keep your nails that long? I find it really hard to type and I keep scratching myself or somehow poking myself. Ugh! I'm too clumsy.
