My winter wardrobe has been feeling a little too black-and-gray lately, so when I saw this dress with its peppermint candy cane stripes, it was a “why not?” moment. It was a risky buy, since I usually shy away from pieces that are bold and bright; but it turned out to be flattering and comfortable, while adding a bit of needed spark to the gloomy February weather Boston has been having lately (how is it already mid-February??).
Switch out the boots and tights for a pair of flats or white sneakers, and the dress is ready to transition into spring!
Since the dress makes a statement, I kept everything else minimal. This white scarf has been a recent favorite of mine — it’s so cozy and soft, and is a neutral yet luminous complement to any winter outfit.
