Six Ways to Style the Same Shirt Dress
This H&M shirt dress has an elasticized waist, which is flattering for most shapes, and its maxi length makes it perfect for layering, even with trousers. In this tutorial, Giedre illustrates six different ways to style this shirt dress to create unique and trendy outfits.
Add texture | Sporty Tourist
For this first look, Giedre styled the shirt dress with a few textured elements. She chose a wide-brimmed fedora to give the outfit a touristy vibe.
She added a black and beige scarf as a belt to help accentuate her waist and rolled up the sleeves to style the dress up a bit.
To add even more textured elements while keeping in the same color scheme and touristy vibe, she completed the look with a black woven purse.
White canvas sneakers were the final touch. Giedre has taken the dress from a slightly baggy frock to a chic jet-setter look with just a few accessories.
Add structure | Business style
To style the dress for a business occasion, Giedre layered a black blazer over the dress and closed the top button.
She added a wide black leather belt with a striking buckle to add even more structure and detail.
Strappy black sandals with a chunky heel were Giedre’s choice of footwear for this look.
And a beige tote completed the look. Who knew such a flowy dress could be styled so smartly?
Dress it up | Evening style
To make the dress fit for an evening out, Giedre chose to style it with large, statement earrings.
She chose delicate gold heels to step up the elegance of the look.
A wide belt in the same color as the dress helps turn the dress into a head-to-toe monochrome sheath while creating shape and accentuating her waist.
She added a cream-colored clutch to keep in the same color family as the rest of the look. Such an easy, elegant evening look!
Layer | Feminine style
For the next look, Giedre started by opening the buttons of the dress below the waist and layering salmon-colored slacks underneath.
She opened the neckline of the dress and chose a beige purse with chain detailing, decorated with a scarf, to add a little flair and fun to the look.
Pink pointed-toe flats bring cohesiveness to the outfit. What a fun, flirty, feminine look!
Add textures | Modern boho
To style the dress with a modern bohemian look, Giedre started with a black and white leather drawstring purse.
She chose black cork-bed slides for footwear.
A black fedora added yet more detail to the look while keeping with the color scheme.
For a final bit of boho chic, she pulled her hair back with a black and beige silk scarf.
Layer under | Modern Western
Hop on the Western trend bandwagon with this next outfit. For this look, Giedre layered the dress with a wraparound skirt printed with a black and brown geometric pattern.
Brown leather boots were the perfect choice of footwear to keep in the modern Western theme.
She added some detail to the look with a chunky gold chain belt featuring a black leather strap in the front.
A black fedora and beige leather clutch bring the look together--a perfect, country chic style.
