Stripy open shoulder summer dress

loose stripy summer dress with open shoulders

When it's hot outside I prefer to wear dresses instead of pants, and preferably loose dresses for that matter (in spite of them making me look bigger then I am). And this stripy dress from Indian brand Fusion Beats works perfectly for sunny summer days. Besides being of loose silhouette it has open shoulders and nice loose sleeves. The broken line of the hem adds additional interest to the design of the dress. My only complain is fabric. It's not cotton or linen which I would prefer but 100% polyester.

I styled the dress with a 100% paper hat with an animal print band from Mark&Spenser, a ceramic necklace and an embroidered round bag from Accessorize. Yellow wedges complete this modern provincial look.
