Hello friends! Winter is officially kicking off at the end of the week. To help you (and me!) cope with the dropping temperatures I wanted to share some shirt dress style inspiration, especially for winter. Similar to the Faux Fur Vest style tips I shared during the fall, this post is in collaboration with Lou Lou Boutiques on a special post for y’all. Shirt dresses can be worn throughout the year, but today I’m focusing specifically on thick, flannel ones and how to style them so you look cute, but not cold!
I wore Lou Lou’s shirt dress around Old Town Alexandria (in Northern Virginia) for a fun afternoon in November, exploring the waterfront and, of course, shopping at Lou Lous. I stayed super warm in a thick shawl vest and my leather leggings. But for full-blown winter, you may need to bundle up more.
Here are a few tips for styling a shirt dress this winter:
- Layers are always a good idea – If it’s colder where you are, try pairing your shirt dress with a coat that hits at your hips or knees. You can also wear a cami or tank top under your dress for extra warmth,
- Accentuate your waist – Shirt dresses with a tie waist are most flattering. If your dress doesn’t come with a tie waist like the one I got from Lou Lou’s add a belt!
- Switch tights for leggings – The faux leather leggings I’m sporting are so much warmer than tights. Investing in some for your winter wardrobe, will be good for all your dresses, skirts and tunic-length tops!
Shop the whole look!
