Back in the day, stripes weren't accepted too well as they were considered evil in some parts of the world. With time,this belief started fading and stripes started to get popular. In the 70's, Missoni turned this popularity into a wardrobe staple. The eclectic stripes, chevron in particular, made its way into the fashion lexicon. From apparel and accessories to walls and wagons, this print was all over.
I'm a sucker for anything vintage and I'm sure that's pretty obvious after seeing my previous posts. While doing my usual everyday surfing on the Jabong app, I discovered this beautiful maxi. The colours and the shape not only reminded me of the 70's prints, but also reminded me of the boho slip maxis. Priced at just a hundred less than a grand, there wasn't an option of thinking twice. In no time, the dress was delivered and I was eagerly waiting for a chance to wear it.
I styled the dress with this belt to flatter my body shape. I literally cannot live without this double buckle vintage belt and I wish I could buy them in all possible colours. It looks good on everything! So bare with me until I'm bored with it. To put the look in sync with the vintage slash boho-ness, I carried this suede fringed bag in beige.
I totally fancy how the outfit turned out to look. It's purchases like these that always point out to the fact that you don't need to be a millionaire to be à la mode!
