Outfit: Striped Bodycon Dress, Purple Cardigan, and Silver Oxford Shoes

This was a forgotten outfit, somehow. I wore this back in late May and recently realized I hadn't posted it. I actually really liked how it turned out with the mix of silver and purple. This striped bodycon dress is different than most of the silhouettes in my wardrobe so I enjoyed styling it. I used some credits to Sheinside I won from The Clothes Horse to get it. I figured if it didn't work out I wouldn't be out any money so I might as well try something new. I tried to dress down this dress by pairing it with a comfy cardigan and flat shoes, but it could definitely be worn for a night out with heels. Wearing bodycon dresses means your food baby from chicken nuggets and hot dogs is super apparent though, so keep that in mind when wearing bodycon things to graduation parties.

I really like how the stripes on this dress create the illusion of curves on my body. I'm generally hip-less so this makes me look a little more like a woman in that area. Do you wear bodycon dresses or skirts? I feel like they look good on so many different body shapes. How would you style a dress like this? I'd love more ideas on how to remix it!

Anyway, I hope you have a fantastic Wednesday!

I haven't worn anything bodycon in a long long time. I just can't get comfy in it. I do love the pattern on this though and I like the shape it gives you. Black and whites are a great basis to so many different outfits. I'm thinking winter time with coloured wool tights and and some grungy boots :)

Lovely! I love mixing dresses and oxfords! :)

I rarely wear body con dresses because I feel self conscious, but I always seem to get compliments.

I'm definitely loving the color combo here. Black and white stripes can do no wrong, really. And those silver oxfords are fabulous!

Ah, this dress looks amazing on you, Jamie! I generally like body con dresses but I'm always afraid to wear them because then if I eat like one pea I feel like you're gonna see it digesting in my estomago.

How did you forget such a gorgeous outfit! *_* I love the cardigan and silver shoes. I'd probably style this dress with some combat boots and a lace cardigan, and maybe even a beanie, if it's not scorching hot :D

That is a great dress. I love the way the stripes highlight your waist. I learned the hard way not to wear tight things to my favorite mexican restaurant.
