Shirt Dress Style Inspiration for Winter

Shirt Dress Style Inspiration for Winter - SCsScoop.com

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!

Four Faux Fur Vest Style Tips

Four Faux Fur Vest Style Tips - Lou Lou Boutiques Old Town Alexandria - SCsScoop.com

Hi friends! Fall is in full swing and the holidays are creeping up so fast. Frankly, it’s kinda scary how fast this year has gone by. Today, I am excited to be collaborating with Lou Lou Boutiques on a special post for y’all. I am sharing four faux fur style tips – say that five times fast! And, the faux fur vest I’m sporting is in Lou Lou Boutiques’ stores and online. Fur vests can be such a fun way to spice up an outfit and add some interest your look. The tips below will help you style a fur vest now, at Thanksgiving dinner, through the holidays and well into the winter season.

Faux Fur Vest Style Tips

#1 – Keep it simple. Pairing a simple dress with your vest will let it stand out. I also recommend choosing only one (or two at the most)

#2 – Pick a vest that accentuates your body. To keep you legs looking long, choose a vest that hits at your hips. On the flip side, if you have a short torso, try a vest that goes below your hips.

#3 – When in doubt, opt for all black or neutrals. If your fur vest has a lot of color variation or a fun texture and you’re feeling unsure how to style it, pair the vest with black pieces to create a chic look that is perfect for the holiday season. You can also never go wrong with pairing a fur vest with jeans and a white turtleneck.

#4 – Pair with chunky sweaters and cardigans. As the season gets colder, don’t be afraid to add layers under your vest. For the look I’m wearing, a chunky black sweater underneath the fur vest to make it warmer and winter-friendly. At the same time, my look would work just as well without the leather leggings I have on.

There are a few details I have to share about what I am wearing. The faux fur vest is reversible. The other is a sleek black (not fur) with a fur collar. The burgundy swing dress I’m wearing comes in 5 colors. Perhaps the best thing about these items from Lou Lou, is the prices. They have a great range of affordable items, that don’t compromise the quality. You may know from my most recent post, that that’s a huge win for me.

Hopefully, you find my style tips helpful as the seasons change and you’ll consider supporting local, small business, like Lou Lou, during the upcoming holiday season. I’ll be sharing more from my collaboration with Lou Lou Boutiques so stay tuned!

In the meantime, I’d love to hear if you have any faux fur vest style tips for the fall or winter. What do you like to pair with fur vests?

I would also love to hear what you plan to wear for Thanksgiving. We’ll be staying in the D.C. area, and I’m still deciding between a more comfortable look that involves stretchy pants and something more formal/constricting – ha! What do you prefer to wear on Thanksgiving Day and what will you be up to? Let me know in the comments.

Cheers!

Sarah Camille
