I have received quite a few requests to post some warmer fall outfits, which sure enough makes sense, as it’s getting pretty cold in Canada. We are still having a gorgeous fall, but it’s getting chilly. And as I always do, I tried this year as well to stretch out the summer season for as long as possible. But it’s time to put on some layers and get warmed up.
I always talk in my blog about alternate ways to wear an item, in particular how to transition it from one season to another; but rarely do I get to show you all of those different options. In my last post, I talked about how you can dress up a shirt dress in different ways. Well, today I chose to wear that same exact dress but differently. Firstly, I did not have it cinched at the waist but opted to wear it loose and oversized. This trend is very big for fall but you have to be careful not to look sloppy. If you are wearing an oversized item, make sure your other pieces are fitted and you are wearing a structured bag, as this will give you a more polished look.
This was a warmer fall day but I still wore several layers. I wore a black fitted cotton dress underneath the shirt dress, with black tights and over the knee boots (wohooo I finally found a pair that fits me! Long story). I wore a leather jacket and piled on couple of leopard print scarfs to keep my neck warm from the wind. You may think wearing a sweater may be warmer but having 2-3 layers of thinner items on you actually creates insulation from cold and wind.
So tell me now, which way of styling the shirt dress do you like better: today’s look or the one in the previous post?
Thanks for checking in!
