9 to 5 Style ~ Stripes

Hey there, friends! Welcome to another month of 9 to 5 Style with Jennie {A Pocketful of Polka Dots} and Fonda {Savvy Southern Chic}. This month we are featuring stripes. Oh how I love them! They are so versatile for work and casual. Since I’ve been running a little short on time I’m going to re-feature a striped dress that I wear A LOT to work. It’s simple classic and easy to wear.


This is one of my type of dresses – the sheath. I love the fit and versatility of this little striped dress. It’s great all by itself and yet there are tons of other possibilities.

I recently featured this look here. The fabulous scarf is from the GYPO Collection from

Get Your Pretty On. 

stripes and floral

And then there never a day when pattern mixing isn’t a good thing!

 Love a cardigan over this dress and there are so many options. A muted green was a combo I loved.

I could keep going but trying to get this post up today so that’s my looks for stripes at the office.

Hope you’re having a fabulous Monday!

  • I ALWAYS love this dress on you! I think it might just be my favorite of your dresses.

  • I LOVE that dress with the polka dot top over it!!!!

  • I have this dress but in the navy stripe. Love all of the tricks you did with this versatile piece. Why can’t I think out of the box or off the hanger like you do?! Like Deena said, I love the polka dot blouse over it. Genius.

  • I’ve always loved this dress on you. So pretty with the polka dots!

  • Savvy Southern Chic

    Love this dress with the cardigan! All of these looks are great ways to mix up stripes.

  • Carrie, this is a great dress, I think I’ve said that before. I am a huge fan of versatile clothes because lets face it most of us can’t afford a brand new wardrobe with the changing of seasons.

  • Jodie Filogomo

    I love how you really mixed up this dress!! And my fave is probably with the polka dot shirt!! What a great combination!

  • Ruth Maldonado

    I love the different uses of this dress! It’s a great neutral and I love the blue stripes. All great combos you’ve put together!


  • So many great styling options presented for your striped dress, Carrie! I really like it with your cardigan and with a scarf. This post reminds me I need to showcase more options with one item, which I am working on, slowly, but surely. Great style prompt for this month and I am glad we each chose a different striped item.
