I associate horizontal stripes with nautical themes. I think of the pattern as classic and chic, but certainly not sexy. Horizontal stripes go well with ballet flats, brogues, and sneakers. They’re preppy and to a certain extent, very French. I can’t, however, think of stripes as anything but that. That is, up until I saw these pictures of Victoria Justice giving classic stripes a whole new spin.

As you can see, the young actress decided to team her striped off-shoulder dress with the most unexpected accessory — fishnet stockings — when she attended Primark’s store opening at Willow Grove in Pennsylvania on Thursday. She also finished the mix with edgy open-toe booties. The whole mix was sexy, yet unusual and surprising. Fortunately, Victoria managed to pull it off. Seriously, who would have thought mixing a striped dress with fishnet stockings could make sense?!

Will you wear a striped mini dress with fishnet stockings and clip-toe booties like Victoria here? Think you can pull off the mix

I couldn’t find any information on Tori’s whole outfit yet, but I’m willing to bet some of the pieces are from Primark. If you’re digging her style here, you can easily recreate it with a striped mini dress, some fishnet stocking, and peep-toe booties with ankle tie closures. Here are two shoe options you can consider. These are relatively affordable:

For the gals with expensive taste, these booties from Gianvito Rossi will be the perfect choice. They’re extra sexy thanks to the lace-up details on the sides and the slim 4.25-inch-tall self-covered heels. A set will cost you $1075:
