    6 Ways To Style A Shirt Dress

    February 22, 2019

    It’s hard to believe we’re in February and the temperamental weather is persisting. With Valentine’s Day over for another year and March drawing ever closer, it’s time to recycle the empty chocolate boxes, deflate the heart shaped balloons and start to look forward to brighter beginnings.

    Fortunately, for the fashion conscious among us, it’s not all doom and gloom when it comes to transitional style. In-between-season pieces are still a wardrobe essential and, although we’re not quite at the point where you don’t need to wear a jacket, we’re edging a little closer.

    Here at Yumi HQ, we’re big supporters of creating sustainable pieces that can be re-worn and treasured. From iconic tunic dresses to exclusive unicorn prints that don’t lose their style, fast fashion is soon becoming a forgotten memory.

    Furthermore, to celebrate our love of versatile clothes, we’ve selected one piece from our recent collection that can be worn to any event, and in many ways. To prove this, our Yumi stylists have fashioned different outfits that included our chosen piece: affordable fashion never looked so good.

    So, without further ado, here are 6 ways to keep your transitional closet popping:

    Transitional Pet Print

    Dog Shirt Dress

    Dalmatian Shirt Dress

     

    Meet your new wardrobe hero: our dalmatian shirt dress. With a playful and exclusive dog pattern that’s a new take on animal print, this short sleeve dress has a flattering self-tie waist to enhance your figure. Plus, monochrome colours are very in this season.

    For our first look, simply let the dress do the talking and add a black handbag. Perfect for brunching or hitting your favourite shops in, finish with a pair of chunky heels.

    Grab Your Coat

    I don’t know if we’ve mentioned it yet, but the current weather is not ideal. So, for those rainy days in London that you can’t escape from, add a splash of colour in the form our trench coat. Style your outfit with a large rucksack for storing your daily essentials.

    Shirt And Skirt

    It’s midweek and you can’t wait until the weekend so it’s time to get your skirt on for cocktail o’clock. Designed in a flared shape that shows off your waist and adds a touch of retro charm, tuck the dress into the skirt to give the impression of a top. Complete your look by adding a bag and teaming it with heeled boots.

    Just Add Jeans

    Next, why not try a casual look? Switch up your everyday outfit by stepping into a pair of embroidered jeans and letting the dress fall to the knee. When styling, consider intricate details like undoing the bottom buttons to reveal a cami top.

    Feel The Flare

    If you prefer the more vintage things in life, opt for a pair of flared jeans. There’s nothing they won’t go with and what’s more, they have pockets. Using the dress as a longline jacket, finalize your transitional look with a camisole and a 90s rucksack.

    Jump To It

    Finally, the beauty of a shirt dress is you can wear it wherever you like. So, for an outfit you can rock to the office and then out for drinks, choose this stripe jumpsuit as the perfect pairing. The clash of animal print on stripes is a fun twist, while the addition of a classy bag maintains the workwear chic.
