How to Style a Shirt Dress for Fall

 Dress Banana Republic, boots Just Fab, sunglasses Ray-Ban, scarf H&M, bag unknown (Marshalls), rings H&M, bracelet (gift)

Fall is in full gear. Trees are changing their colours and I am starting to dread waking up in the morning. Mornings are cold and dark. Luckily weather has been beautiful this fall. I'm off to Chicago this coming weekend and luckily the weather will serve us right.

You know how much I love fall clothing and layering, right? I said that one too many times :). I absolutely love fall colours: mustard yellow, burgundy, all of them. Though today's outfit is not really in fall colour, it's still fall appropriate. One staple that everyone should have in their closet is a shirt dress. You can wear it casually on the weekend or dress it up for the office. This soft blue dress is from Banana Republic. I scored it while on sale (wohoo!). It is so versatile that you can wear it many different ways. For today's post, I cinched it at the waist with a scarf. Scarfs have been everywhere last few months and they certainly provide a great alternative to a belt. As they usually come in different patters, they provide an element of surprise to your outfit and make it that much interesting. I opted for wedge fringe ankle boots, as I was going out for a dog walk and morning coffee run. Fringe boots give it a more relaxed feel. If it's chilly out, why not throw on an oversized cardigan or a leather jacket? Don't like leather jackets? Denim will do just as well.

I have also worn this dress un-cinched. It looks somewhat as if you are wearing a nightgown, but pairing it with dressier stilettos and a structured bag, it keeps the look still very put together and office appropriate.

This dress in particular is quite loose so I also got to wear it as a light summer jacket/trench coat. I wore it with skinny jeans and a T-shirt, but it will work just as well with a light dress. And how about using it as a cover up when you go away south for a vacation?  Just think of how many ways you can style it and how much wear you can get out of it!

Who's off to buy a shirt dress this weekend?

Ciao!
