How to Layer The Shirt Dress for Winter
The Shirt Dress, though entirely enjoyable to wear in the spring, is an amazing transition piece that can be worn during the tail-end of winter if layered and paired correctly. There are so many ways to stretch your favorite knee-skimming cotton number even when the weather calls for coverage. Here are ways to stylishly survive the last weeks of winter with an unexpected twist on an adorable shirt dress:
The Flirty: Faux fur and cozy suede knee-high boots. In the latest February InStyle, Emmy Rosum was quoted saying “I love this lightweight dress and I don’t want to wait for spring to wear it, so I toss on faux fur and cozy suede boots.” A celebrity concept that is completely steal-worthy, this fun and flirty idea can be applied any shirt dress in your wardrobe.
The Fashionable: Trench coat, wool leggings, and thigh-high boots. I love the look of a fantastic beige trench coat as it seems to ooze sophistication, while also guarding its wearers from wind, rain, sleet, snow, or hail. Wearing a shirt dress underneath, paired with a warm and sleek pair of wool leggings, and trendy thigh high boots, ensures that style will remain even when the trench coat comes off.
The Fundamentals: Jeggings, turtleneck, and a skinny belt. Using basic staples already in your closet is what makes layering object so easy and original. The artistic creativity that comes with mixing and matching old with the new always provides an outcome of resourcefulness that is both easy on the eye and the budget. A turtleneck and jeggings keep you temperate while a skinny belt ensures a shape that is both flattering and chic.
