2 ways to wear a shirt dress

Hey there dolls!

The shirt dress is not a first on this blog. It’s a piece that I like particularly so I grab any version I like at the time. This time I found a nice gray glen check pattern.
What’s nice about shirt dresses is that they can be worn on many different occasions and in many different ways. So today I’m going to show you two ways to wear it for a more interesting approach than its plain form.

First look:

In my first look I wore it on top of trousers in the same color and fabric (slightly different pattern). The length of the trousers creates a nicer result than full length ones. I added a leather belt to give it a bit more of a shape in the waist and I completed the look with heels and socks. The heel/sock trend is something you either love or hate. Personally I like but I have to tell you that my husband was second guessing my choice! Oh well….

Second look:

For the second look I matched it with a skirt worn above the shirt dress. The material of the shirt is very light so the skirt fitted well on top (you can’t do that with thicker fabrics). I chose a shorter skirt to create that contrast between the skirt and the dress.

I completed both looks with my favorite vintage trench coat and my new handmade clutch bag in the same colors.

Winter whites

Hey sweeties!

The total black look is tried and tested and it is always a safe option. But what about the total white look in winter? Do you belong to the group of people with the mindset that white is only for summer? If so, have you ever considered “winterizing” white by choosing the fabrics wisely? Because the thin line between a summer white and a winter white is defined by the weight of the fabric.

Try to incorporate various textures like silky pants with woolen, chunky sweaters. Or cashmere tops with white jeans. Crisp white outfits are even more elegant than black. If worn right it provides you with a powerful classy elegance.
And if you don’t want to go all “snow white”, try adding a splash of color with your shoes, purse or accessories.

Rock your whites this winter!
