Hey, Street Stylers!
The urban dictionary defines the term savage as someone who does not care about the consequences of their actions. I’m starting this post on my soap box! What happened to civility? What happened to compassion? What happened to love? There is this sense that being savage is the new normal. We must not let a false sense of reality dictate our actions. There are unfortunately a number of socially disturbing behaviors that have made the current news cycle, moreover, the attitude and behavior we are exhibiting socially have become quite contentious. Insert the law of attraction, whether we realize it or not the energy that is expelled is responsible for the positive and negative influences in our lives! It’s a basic concept but it bears repeating, the more positive energy you put out the more positive energy you’ll receive. We have to establish healthy interactions and communications on social media and socially! Let’s focus on our similarities instead of our differences! I have a challenge for everyone including myself, let’s practice the art of humanity daily and find a way to connect.
On today’s post, I’m sharing my love for the button down T-shirt dress! Versatile and effortless, the shirtdress is a timeless classic summer staple in the perfect fabric and style for the brutal summer heat. A Shirtdress is a perfect style combination of casual to office wear. I love the effortless appeal of this BCBG Ani-cold shoulder shirtdress . The cutout shoulders and hi-low hem adds some street edge when styled with a platform ankle strap sandal which I paid only $98 for. I have always considered myself a bit of a prepster. Growing up I would usually gravitate towards stripes, oxford shirts and loafers. Yes, I was a bit of a nerd in my youth with the prescription glasses and the afro to match! As my style evolved I still craved the preppy look but with a touch of adulthood! My favorite fashion pieces are always classic timeless looks that flatter all body types. I wanted to share some styling tips for the essential shirtdress.
A defined waist that nips in the middle and has a roomy A-line skirt balances out a more triangular shape. Details like ruffles, pleats, and a cinched waist create fullness to create curves on a rectangular frame. A flowy style with a relaxed fit or a beltless tailored cut is perfect for street stylers with a diamond shape frame where the waist is larger than the bust and shoulders. Knee-length styles offer the most slimming effects and look amazing on taller frames. When choosing a fabric, 100 percent cotton or linen and a simple V-neck offer the most flattering combination. My favorite body part is my legs and I seize any opportunity to showcase my lovely stems:) Street stylers cater to your strengths, especially when styling. I added a chain handle handbag from Sam Edelman to complete my look. How do you accessorize your white cotton shirt dress? Leave me comments below. Light and love! Have a great weekend!
