HOW TOS: Many ways to style a Shirt Dress

Reinvent new combinations of what you already own. Improvise. Become more creative. Not because you have to. Evolution is the secret for the next step- Karl Lagerfeld.

Every stylish person should be able to nicely restyle and revamp his/her wardrobe pieces. In order to maximize your wardrobe, you need to be able to repeat, revibe and revamp your pieces over and over, in different ways (no matter how small the changes are). I think it’s fun actually. Pick out a dress from your closet and just begin to imagine possible ways to style it with other pieces in your closet (nothing outside….). Try it- like a game. You will be amazed at how much you could do with that small or huge closet of yours. The whole concept of maximizing your wardrobe is majorly useful when it comes to your basics which you find yourself wearing very often.

Shirt dresses can be super versatile if you let them be. They've also been every girl’s must-have recently just like the Shift dresses. I have therefore decided to share possibly ways to style your shirt dress.

Add a longer layer to balance out a shorter hem- with a coat, jacket….

Add a short coat, sleeveless jacket, blazer

Add a belt

Make it an outer wear

Knot it

With or without a bottom layer

Go Bohemian

Think extraordinaire… totally love the way Ada of No Ordinary She styled her Shirt dress- layered with a skirt. That jacket is literally giving me live!

With shorts- try doing a half tuck.

As simple as it can be

Take it to the streets.

Throw on a scarf. Kicks? Yes please.

Dress it up. Try a knot.

With boots and thigh high Glads…

Repeat, Revibe and Restyle…

Have a great week Digs and Skims!
Thanks for stopping by!

TRENDS: Lace and Lace ups

Straight outta the 70’s, the lace up trend is taking over the fashion scene in a big way. From laced clothing to lace up details, there is no stopping this trend (…just yet).

Add a laced piece to your wardrobe for a super girly and trendy touch this season. Buy them in tops, dresses, shorts etc. You can either go with full laced pieces or clothing with lace details.

Also, it's not so hard to notice the lace up trend- crisscrossing in bodysuits, dresses, jackets, playsuits, tops etc. This detail is usually around the chest area, arm or at the back.

You might have to for-go your normal bra when dealing with this detail, as you don’t want it showing underneath. Lucky for you if you find one that works well with your normal bra. Some clothing with lace up detail will require you to wear a silicon or stick on bra. If not, you can go for a style bra that sports a deep V (Although the V might not always be deep enough- depending on the length of the lace up detail).

Lace up shoes, sandals and boots are also having their time. Do not miss out of these fun trends.

Slay in Lace!

Have a great week Digs and Skims...
