WPF Listview Alternate Row Color

For setting the background color of Listview rows in an alternate fashion (odd rows and even rows) at first create a style element :

 <Style x:Key="alternatingStyle" TargetType="{x:Type ListViewItem}">
            <Trigger Property="ItemsControl.AlternationIndex" Value="0">
                <Setter Property="Background" Value="LightSkyBlue"></Setter>
            <Trigger Property="ItemsControl.AlternationIndex" Value="1">
                <Setter Property="Background" Value="LightGray"></Setter>
            <Trigger Property="IsSelected" Value="True">
                <Setter Property="Background" Value="Orange"/>                

Now write this XAML code for ListView

<ListView BorderBrush="#FFA8CC7B" Height="133" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="88,382,0,0" Name="lvInvDetails" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="596"
                  ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource alternatingStyle}" AlternationCount="2">
        <GridViewColumn DisplayMemberBinding="{Binding Path=InvoiceDetailsItemId}" Header="Item Id" Width="90" />
        <GridViewColumn DisplayMemberBinding="{Binding Path=InvoiceDetailsItemName}" Header="Item Name" Width="120" />                    

Now You can see alternation color of listview.

    It gives the following error.
    Error 8 A value of type ‘Style’ cannot be added to a collection or dictionary of type ‘UIElementCollection’.

    What am I missing here? Actually my list view will be populated dynamically.
