I've been obsessed with striped shirts for more than half my life, but it's only in the last few years that my love for stripes has extended into dresses. Right now I'm fantasizing about having so many striped dresses in my life that I can wear a different one every day for like two weeks without repeating too often. Here are the best four dresses the web currently has to offer. 

Stripe Shirt Dress $83.09, ASOS. 

This dress features my two favorite things -- shirt-dresses and stripes -- so it's automatically on my must-have list. The asymmetric hemline is a nice little touch that breaks down the intensity of the vertical stripes. 
 

Multi Stripe Jersey Dress $66, Topshop. 

In the excruciating summer heat, there's nothing better that an a T-shirt dress. The two-tone is cool enough for me to love it, but the blouson effect of the top (is it a shirt and skirt?) takes it all to the next level.  

Striped Lagoon Dress $98, Madewell. 

Short sleeves and stripes that blend in seamlessly from blue to white make this dress totally perfect for summer. I hated sailor outfits as a kid, but now I enjoy a subtle hint of the look every now and then. 

Junya Watanabe Striped Swing Dress $670, Bergdorf Goodman. 

If money wasn't a thing I don't have I would get my ass to Bergdorf Goodman yesterday for this awesome Junya Watanabe dress. The short knit sleeves and swooping cape back are everything I need in my life right now. 

Are you into the striped look as much as I am?
