See how Zoe Saldana styles a $49 Express dress

Navy blue and fire-engine red is one of my favorite combinations and even though I'm on nautical-stripe overload this summer, I admit that I've been eying this $49.90 striped dress from Express for weeks. It's a great transitioning-into-fall piece. Fast-forward a few months, and picture it with tights and boots.

Now that Zoe Saldana was spotted wearing it in Beverly Hills, though, I may have missed my chance. Zoe gives the boat-necked cotton mini her own style with caramel brown accessories— a skinny belt that accentuates her tiny waist, a cross-body purse and thong sandals. Her sleek, pulled-back hair, aviators and giant gold hoops add a 1970s flair.
