If you haven’t put it together by now, I love color. I know the trend right now is “all things neutral,” but maybe as a someone who was a teen in the 80s AND was an art major, colors made a lasting impression on my artistic choices. What you wear can be an artistic expression too, right? I found this striped sweater dress at TJ Maxx on the clearance rack for 14.99! 

Obviously they probably don’t have many left, but I have linked a few others here:
