Why do I like shirt dresses? Probably because I love shirts and this is just a very long shirt. Besides, it’s in fact a very simple and practical dress that nicely highlights one’s silhouette. Some women believe that only a tight and/or short dress highlights the silhouette. Well I definitely disagree with that, as it is very easy to cross the line of elegance and good taste if one wears a too tight and/or short dress. Also all other figure shortcomings are visible if a woman wears such a dress. Another argument for a shirt dress, is that I like to have freedom of movement, and the shirt dress gives me that.
When it’s cold outside, most women put on trousers (I admit that I often do the same). But it’s enough to put on thick tights and then one can easily wear dresses and skirts. Today I wore a plant print shirt dress. I put on thick navy blue tights and the navy blue boots. I like when the tights are in the same color as the boots because it optically extends the silhouette.
I added a navy blue faux fur scarf and a chocolate brown faux fur. I love big purses, so this time I also added a big navy blue suede bag. Generally I am not a big fan of matching the color of shoes and bag, but today I broke the rule because they were made out of different types of leather. This time I have a suede bag. It wouldn’t be me without jewelry, so I put on a statement navy blue and green necklace.
I would put on a longer coat if it was colder, but the weather was not bad, and I also drove, so I wore a short coat.
I am curious if you like the combination of navy blue and chocolate brown?
Today I am taking you for a walk in the Royal Lazienki part next to the Belvedere Restaurant.
