One Shirtdress, Three Ways

The best items in my closet are those that are versatile. Being in college (and having a tiny closet) has basically forced me into having a "capsule wardrobe" -- wearing a few classic pieces that I can style with more seasonal/trendy accessories and garments. One of my favorite "classics" is  a good shirtdress -- like this one. I think they are so chic but appropriate for everyday wear, plus they can be layered for different seasons and styled so many different ways. To show just how much I love my shirtdress, I styled it in 3 different ways -- sporty + fun, cozy but cute, and edgy + understated. This post comes in perfect timing, too, because my dress is $47, down from $98, with the code DOUBLEYAY. Double yay, indeed!

Look 1: Sporty + Fun

For this look, I added some cute enamel pins onto the dress to give it flair and personality -- they're my favorite detail to add to outfits, especially denim! I paired the dress with some gold hoops and pink sneakers for a simple, relaxed combo. I would wear this for walking around a new city (like on vacation), going to class, a casual lunch/brunch or a shopping outing with friends.

Look 2: Cozy But Cute

To create this outfit, I belted the dress, added a long cardigan, simple jewelry, and booties. I know everyone probably has these items in their closet, especially with long cardi's being so popular right now, so it should be super easy to add this into your arsenal of outfits! I would wear this to church, work (in a retail store), formal chapter for my sorority, a nicer dinner, or just when I want to be more presentable but still comfortable.

Look 3: Edgy + Understated

Adding snakeskin booties to this outfit is a perfect example of supplementing a classic wardrobe with trendy pieces. Black tights and gold jewelry polish this look off, and keep it simple enough to make the boots the focal point! I would wear this for any combination of events -- going out with friends for a meal, work, traveling, etc. 



I hope this post helped you to see something you already have in your closet in a different light :-) For 2019, my mission is to build on my classic pieces with new ways of styling!

Stay Sunny,
Meg
