For the last couple of weeks, I've been seeing the cutest black and white striped maxi dresses and wanting to write a post about how much I love them.

And look who just turned up in one! That's Katie Holmes, out and about last Wednesday night with her husband, whose name I forget.

I only wish I'd written the post before Katie wore the dress. Then I would have sworn she reads The Stir.

Oh well ...

Here's how you can get Katie's look for much, much less.










Bebe Dress
Bebe.com, $79
The closest match to what Katie's wearing has got to be this far more affordable Bebe Striped Tank Maxi Dress ($79). And on an unrelated note, I love the Bebe Lacey Perforated Tote ($159) pictured, which I spotted at the mall the other day. It's gorgeous in person and I WANT IT.



Maxi Dress
Topshop.com, $70
This Stripe Jersey Maxi by Rare ($70, Topshop) is super cute, particularly from behind, where the neckline dips to mid-back.


Maxi Dress
Piperlime.com, $246
This Rachel Pally Santa Monica Dress (Piperlime, $246) is the one that started the obsession for me. It's way beyond my budget, but a girl can dream, right?


Maxi Dress
Asos.com, $32.97
And even if you can't personally get in on the striped maxi dress action, your daughter can! Check out this Gap Jersey Stripe Maxi Dress (Asos.com, $32.97). SO CUTE.

What do you think of the striped maxi? London's Daily Mail ripped Katie to shreds over this dress, but I think she looked great (although I would have chosen different shoes).
