H&M Zebra Striped Dress For a Hot Summer in 2023

By Posted on 1 min read 2844 views

Can you believe it is the last month of summer? It flew by for sure. We were lucky in New York in that it did get that hot, though we had some mega humidity with levels hovering between 78-86%, just crazy. On days like this I need something super comfy and cool—like this dress. I really need more of these in my life—with the short length and puffed sleeves and not being too body con, it is great for sweltering days when it is stupid hot.

And the star of the show I picked up at H&M last summer

I paired it with this great Freda Salvador bag I got from my nephews for my birthday, and these fun ballet flats are from Aldo. The sunnies are from the UK brand Powder. I am just loving the pop of orange with the zebra stripes. So fun, right? And the star of the show, I picked up at H&M last summer. Finally got to wear it ! And what say you? How has your summer been going? And how do you dress to beat the heat?

    Allie, you look beautiful in this zebra print and I love how you accessorized this look, too! I’m still in disbelief that summer is almost over, but I am with you on being over all that humidity – it’s not been fun here in southern Ohio. We had a fun vacation in Douglas, Tennesse early last month and otherwise, it’s been a busy summer. I found some pretty shorts at TJMaxx to help on those super hot days!

      Thank you : ) Yes it has been hot, looking forward to fall. But here in NY we did not have it that bad compared to so many areas of the world. Just heart breaking and scary.

    Gorgeous outfit! I love any animal print. I wore a lot of zebra over the last 2-3 years during the Summer months, need to pull those pieces out my wardrobe again. Love the sunnies too.

    I usually don’t wear animal prints, but I LOVE your zebra striped dress! It looks fantastic with the gold jewelry, and I love the pop of orange color!
    Also, summer has flown by, and it was warm and sunny here, but now it’s cold and rainy.

    Gostei das estampas de zebra, apesar de não ter muito aqui em casa eu achei bem bonito e dá para ter uma grande versatilidade ao usar.
