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.

    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! http://www.mylittlenest.org
  • 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.
  • Love the blue striped dress. I have bought a couple of striped dresses this year and love the versatility too! Looks great with the top and the additional beutiful blue tones in the scarf Carrie. Very pretty! Thanks for linking! jess xx www.elegantlydressedandstylish.com
