Transitional weather it is and dressing to this might be the most toughest for many. Why so ? Because one doesn’t know if it is right to step out in a thick winter jacket and later be sweating as the sun might be shining bright or it can be the exact opposite , you step out with the sun shining and realise the thin jacket is not of any use as the chill froze you down ! Hence Smart layering is what I suggest, the key element of wardrobe to play with and experiment during autumn and spring.
Shirt dresses are one of the wardrobe essentials for this weather. They will serve you at multiple occassions – can be your Formal work wear , an easy effortless weekend wear , for a day out with kids or even a Sunday brunch with family. How to style an existing utility piece is what I am gonna help you herewith. If you have one in your wardrobe, go on try these Styling tips or if you are planning to buy one, I shall entice you even more to do so with further read.
3 Ways to Style your Shirt Dress :
As a jacket or layer : The benefit here the shirt dress has is the front buttons they serve. You can hence wear it on your regular denims and top or even on a bodycon dress. If the dress is neutral colour it will serve as beautiful trench too. I used a bright Fuchsia pink top over my fav denims and added this dress on top as a trench. As spring here is the transitional weather I am referring to, I would suggest you to add bright colours like yellows, pinks and greens as your base.
2. Wear as a long top : Here, with my shirt dress I changed the khaki/ cloth belt with my leopard print one ( as its the in thing this season ) and I matched the my shoes with the belt to elevate my look. I wore this dress on jeans for the days which I expected to be warm but ended up being cold ones. You can also play around and try use different belts you already have in your wardrobe to bring more colours to the attire. Simple trick it is, but you feel its a new attire altogether from the one you bought.
3. Wear it Spring Style : So here you wear it as is but with spring style I mean bring colours to it. a contrast colour footwear and a matching bag are the key to bring an oomph to existing attire. So next time you buy a coloured bag try see if you have matching shoes in your closet back home or the vice versa. My zara shirt dress here is a neutral beige so I used vibrant red shoes and a red sling to elevate the look…
So I won your heart over having a Shirt dress serving multiple attires in your transitional weather wardrobe ? Also to add to my styling tips , if the dress is a printed fabric use the inners in block colours and other way round is the dress is a plain fabric like mine you can also play with prints inside. I would not discourage you to not play with prints, you can certainly clash them too but be mindful that they don’t hamper your frame to make to look shorter.

Summers !! ahhh while they last here in England make most of it…Here with this blog I bring the concept “comfort over style” alive ! or lets say “Slay the style with comfort” . Here’s my best take on this seasons trend that is the khaki /cotton palazzos.
Well , you would ask why the best take – it is because these suit all the body shapes. The elastic belts define the waistline so well and bring the elevated look in your routine attire. From a wide variety the market offers, try choose for a tie knot one or the huge buttons to make the style chic and stylish. Make sure the legs are not very wide as they then give the skirt feel and steal away the charm of the palazzo.
How and what to pair these with : the legs being wide I prefer pairing them with a tighter top. Go for short tops to enhance the waist lines, crop tops for hour glass body shapes and lace tops are a pure bliss for all shapes to complete the look. And let the colour contrast steal the show – a lighter top with darker palazzo and the vice versa.
Footwear : pair them with anything literally ( well not boots yeah ) flats for day time, wedges for the brunch look and pumps for the evenings. You can “Carry Well” as my blog says at any time of the day.
Hope you are looking forward to your next shopping trip to pick these pants for your summer wardrobe. This whole look is from Zara. Go have your hands on !

Expressing my delight & pleasure of Styling & sharing this experience with my gorgeous client – Deena. To give you a little background- she’s a beautician by profession , mum of lovely twin girls & my lovely friend. Styling wardrobe of someone who comes from a beauty & fashion culture is equally challenging & interesting, as you get a chance to bring style to the glamour profession too!
’Do more with Less’ we often come across this phrase … but implementing it to our daily wardrobes is little challenging ! I agree ! To deal with this one, all you need is that breeze to tickle your Styling Neurons & that Oomph to experiment with the existing resources. Different looks & styles can be created simply by mixmatch of various wardrobe essentials. Styling each time doesn’t demand a fat wallet, but definitely demands oodles of attitude to try & implement.
