Shirt Dress is a great versatile outfit that you can wear in summer with leggings and boots, and in summers you can pair the same dress with a blazer or light cover up and statement shoes to form a completely new outfit or look.
Today I am styling a lovely new dress from Wolf & Whistle SS16 collection.
Wolf & Whistle is a lovely brand from the UK that offers the perfect blend ofcreativity, utility and quality in every garment. Their pieces are effortlessly elegant and undoubtedly timeless – this gorgeous turquoise Bow Front Shirt.
Dress that I styled is a testament to this fact.Though the dress is made from a blend of polyester and elastane, it has a lovely, luxurious, satin-like feel and finish. It falls beautifully as well, accentuating the femininity of a woman’s body. When it comes to fashion, I am all about the fit, and this dress scores high in that department. As if that wasn’t enough, the colour is absolutely stunning – it is bright, energetic and full of depth. If you are trying to move away from black, white and grey, this is a great colour to start with.
I wore this lovely dress to work one day, and received many complements. I paired the dress with peep toe, block heel boots – my favourite kind of footwear to sport with knee length dresses. I find that they pull the entire look together in a sophisticated and polished manner, in a way that other footwear styles cannot replicate.
For some extra oomph, I like to sport this dress with a structured blazer. The brown one that features in the photographs is my current favourite. This dress is also one of my favourite pieces to wear for a daytime coffee date with my friends, but it can be worn after hours as well. It is sleek and chic, making it a great transition piece that you can easily wear from day to night with a few changes in styling.
If I were to sport this dress after sunset, I would pair it with some statement earrings, glamorous pencil heels and a classy clutch.
The best part about this dress is the bow, which is a strong statement in its own right, so you don’t need to throw on a bold necklace to enhance the look. In fact, that might be overkill, but I reckon that this dress would look lovely with a tattoo necklace. Though I have currently worn a illusion chain with black beads.
When it comes to styling your hair with this dress, you can go both ways – leaving it loose and down, or putting it into a bun for a more formal look. I am always on the hunt for versatile, classic pieces and this dress is the perfect example of a garment that fits the bill.
