Stressed. Depressed. But well dressed–Anonymous

Who would have ever thought that a thing once considered a big fashion no-no would become an ubiquitous trend almost overnight? I am talking about the shirt dress over jeans trend that seems to have swept street style mavericks and Instagrammers. After sitting on the fence for a long time, I too have jumped in this wagon. At first glance, this look seems intimidating and too fashion-y to be pulled off in real life. But here, I will show that this look is easy to achieve and with a dollop of fun (not to mention) ease to it.

Shirt dress over jeans style

In theory the idea of pairing a calf length dress with jeans should not work but as you can see it does. The trick here is to play with proportions, colour and style. The easiest (and in my book the best) way to nail this look is to pair a light weight shirt dress with skinny jeans.

Add nifty accessories like a bracelet, rings, flats and oversized glasses and you have got an effortless casual yet chic style. This look does not have to be casual though, add heels, ripped jeans, a statement jacket and super cute bag (like a geometric clutch) and you have a look for the evening.

I have opted for a casual look here because this was a day trip to Lavender Fields in Surrey (Near London) (More on that later) but I cannot wait to try the night time look to see how I can glam up the humble shirt dress.

A special thanks to my friend Sai for taking some of the photos here and as always my dear hubby as well :0)

Elegance is refusal—Coco Chanel

Of late the Shirt dress has been making fashion waves. It was one of the major styles that was showcased during the fashion week. From Marios Schwab to Christopher Raeburn, the shirt dress was backed up by several major designer. Needless to say, it has become a darling street style trend with several high street players snapping it up.

I purchased this dress, almost a month and half ago and wore it during a glorious sunny day. The shirt dress is equal parts prim and edgy. I have paired my linen, checked shirt dress with navy heels and minimal accessories. I’ve carried a polka dot bag in a similar colour scheme.

The shirt dress is also an extremely versatile piece. Wear it with a belt to show off your curves and create the enviable hour glass or hang it loose if you have a boyish figure and want some volume .

If you are conscious about the length then pair it with cigarette trousers for a chic, head-turning look.

No matter your shape and size, give this style a try and you might be pleasantly surprised. And don’t forget the two best accessories to complete the look—a killer smile and confidence.
