The Other Way to Wear Your Shirt Dress

February 18, 2019

H&M v-neck shirt dress

You should try to get the most wear out of every piece of clothing you own. So I’m a big fan of the pieces that can be styled multiple different ways because they get the most milage. I bought this H&M v-neck dress initially to wear just as a regular ol’ dress. But as I’m trying it on the night before the shoot I thought: maybe there’s a better way to wear it. Especially since the weather’s probably a little too nippy for me to wear the dress on its own.

So instead I decided to wear the dress as a duster-style jacket, layered over extra warm heattech turtleneck shirt and a flattering high-waist jeggings. Read on to see more of this outfit.

    I’ve actually been seeing lots of people wear this style of dress as a duster jacket, I think it’s definitely turning into a trend without meaning to and I think it looks gorgeous.

    I love this idea. Using one piece to create different looks is my favorite. Looks like I’ll be wearing my shirt dresses differently this spring. :)
