Travel Style: 10 Looks with 20 Pieces | Part Four: The Striped Dress | Intentional Style by Ashlee Proffitt and Megan Michele | Striped Dress by H&M

I began this series by showing you the exact items I packed for my 10 day Italian Adventure along with a few tips on how to Build The Perfect Travel Wardrobe. Part One of the 10 Looks with 20 Pieces showcased the ever valuable Pixie Pant, Part Two we showed two ways to style The Jean Short , Part Three showed the amazingly versatile Ankle Bootie and Part Four took a look 3 ways to style the Utility Jacket. This is Part 5 and the last of this specific series and we will be looking at what a great addition a little striped dress can be to your every day and especially, your travel wardrobe!

As a reminder, a few benefits to packing intentionally and purposefully (i.e. items that can be worn in multiple ways) include:

  • Lighter load
  • Less money & time spent checking luggage
  • Greater mobility (because your usual heavy load isn’t weighing you down!)
  • Less time spent deciding what to wear
  • Minimizing excess

Megan Michele: Having a striped dress in your closet is a must! Whether it is any length of sleeve, cotton, silk or polyester, it needs to be there. It’s purely classic and, as we’ll see with Ashlee’s looks, it can be worn pretty much during any season or during any time of the day because it’s a neutral piece that is paired well with most toppers, shoes, scarves and accessories.

Ashlee: I actually bought this dress while in Italy and it has quickly become a favorite in my wardrobe. Add a blazer and heels and you have the perfect ensemble for a business meeting. Pair it with black flats and you have a simple outfit perfect for running errands, a playdate or a meeting the kids’ teachers. It’s perfect!!
