While having lunch in West Hollywood, Rachel Zoe was spotted sporting a black-and-white striped maxi dress, which she paired with a black beanie, platform sandals, aviator shades, and tons of gold jewels. At a glance Rachel's dress looks like any other striped maxi, but upon closer inspection, you'll notice that it has varying stripes, meaning not all the stripes are of the same width. Some are thick, and some are super thin, making this a much more flattering print to rock all Spring and Summer. You can wear it like Rachel did, or you can trade the beanie for a '70s-glam floppy hat. For a pop of color, cinch the maxi with a neon belt or throw on a pair of colorful sandals.
