Today, there are many beautiful results in fashion because of the fusion of one thing and another. For instance, the shirt dress is one garb that fits this description perfectly. The blend of a shirt and a dress brings out a comfortable and elegant shirtdress. Once you get yourself a Lily Lulu Fashion shirt dress, you can style it in various ways according to your mood and occasion. It is an irresistibly chic attire, and everyone is trying to get two or three to add to their closets. How do you then go ahead and give your shirt dress a twist every time you wear it? Below are elegant ways to style your shirt dress.

  • Add a Coat Over It

This is one way that you can opt to pair your shirt dress. As you choose the coat to pair it with, opt for a shade darker than the shirtdress. For this look to stand out, pair it with heels and add a clutch. Choose a clutch that is of the same shade with the whole outfit or one that is a complete contrast. This is a look you can wear anywhere you please, and it is a great look no matter what.

  • Choose a Midi Shirt Dress

Since there are many types of shirt dresses, the midi option is one that you can choose to style for your next shirt dress look. They are elegant and unique. They give out an old school appeal from their straight silhouette and dainty collar. The beauty of this midi shirt dress is with bold make-up and high heels. You create a trendy look. Optionally, if you want to feel like you stepped out in a retro movie, wear a hat and ankle boots to give you that look.

  • Pair With Jeans

Jeans never disappoint. Use one of your skinny jeans pairs and pair it with a shirt dress to achieve a different look. Do not worry. It will not look as if it is out of place. The most preferred here is the blue denim as it is flexible. Also, if you feel like you have to clinch your waist with this styling option, there is no need as the silhouette does not affect your look. Opt for bold shoes if your dress is a light hue to add that extra something, or choose a contrasting purse.

  • Print on Print

This styling option is for those who dare to go bold with fashion. However, do not be afraid of it. If you choose your prints correctly, you will rock the look. To do this, remember a broader geometric pattern and color will determine the compatibility of the two. So, where the two prints have a shape or color in common, you are good to pair them. If you want to play it safe, wear a single color shirt dress and pair it with a patterned jacket.

  • Shirt on Shirt

Pulling this look is not easy. However, if you can do it and get it as you should, you will get many positive compliments. One way to get this look is to wear a monochrome shirt dress. Pair with a patterned or striped shirt over it and unbutton it. If you feel the need, tie a narrow belt to secure both in place. Accessorize with matching shoes and bags.

  • Go for Denim Shirt Dresses

This is a must-have for those who love denim. But still, everyone should give this denim shirt dress a try. They come as a straight silhouette, and you can opt not to wear a belt. The best colors to look out for is rough black or washed-out blue. If you want to soften it out as denim has a rugged feel, pair it with colorful shoes. Accessorize with a simple sling bag and chunky earrings to complete your look.

  • Go for the Oversize

Oversized shirt dresses are a cool type of shirt dress. When you decide to wear this style, you can pair it with shorts or decide to go bold. If you wear this to have a comfy day, avoid cinching it at the waist and allow it to flow. Pair with a quaint handbag and gladiator sandals.

Lots of love,
