Layering with Shirt Dresses

SHOP THE LOOK: Curate Thread Lightly Dress, $279, Trelise Cooper A Bit On The Side Jacket, $899

Shirt dresses are a timeless and versatile wardrobe staple. Their clean lines and classic silhouette make them perfect for layering all-year-round.

Whether you choose a crisp white, or a chic black shirt version, here are some styling tips to help you create fashionable ensembles

Experiment with Outerwear:

SHOP THE LOOK: Curate Thread Lightly Dress, $279, Moke Mae Long Vest, $260 

Layering a long-line shirt dress with a long puffer adds texture and contrast to your outfit. It also gives the optical illusion of making you look taller.

Consider pairing it with a knee-high boot to bring it into winter. Wear a cross-body bag for a relaxed, yet sophisticated vibe.

Play with Textures:

To add visual interest to your ensemble, experiment with different textures.
For a chic and contemporary look, layer your shirt dress with a cropped textured jacket. Mixing textures adds dimension to your outfit and creates a unique style statement.

Winter Footwear Idea:

SHOP THE LOOK: Cooper Shacket Time Jacket, $429

Team a white shirt dress with over-the-knee leather boots for a stylish contrasting winter look. Ankle boots will also work too (when worn with the new Paula Ryan Eco Leather Over-the-knee Spats).
