I just bought a cute shirtdress and was wondering whether you could come up with some outfit ideas around it. It's red, hits slightly above the knee, has short sleeves, and came with a wide black belt. I'd like to be able to wear it in spring, summer, and fall if possible; I'm thinking layering, but not sure how best to go about it. Your help would be greatly appreciated.I'm such a fan of shirtdresses! Here's my recommendation:
Dress - An approximation of Cynthia's. $100 from Nordstrom. In her case, she'll need two belts to replace the sash: one summery in light leather and one in dark brown for fall.
Shoes - Summery espadrilles.
Straw tote - From Spiegel for $20.
Headband - From J.Crew in bright silk.
Cropped jacket - Houndstooth is fun for fall. This little jacket would also be nice with jeans and a sweater.
Boots - A good pair of boots is priceless. This pair from J.Crew will go with anything, in this case a red dress and a pair of tights.
Handbag - From Target.
Okay, that's it. Bring it on, cold weather. I know summer is on the way here in SF, but I'm really tempted to unpack the tweeds. My ideal outfit today would be a pair of wool trousers, a thick cableknit sweater, bright wool coat and leather boots!
