Let your sleeves hang

Too-long sleeves that go past the wrist or covering the entire hand have been all over the runway and streets this past year, and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. All you need to rock this is a long-sleeved shirt - keep the sleeves loose and un-cuffed, and voila, you’re a street style star.

Get more wear out of your favourite dress by simply layering another skirt or top over it. We promise - no one would even tell if you were wearing the same thing three times a week, in three different ways.

The dainty pussy bow is back! Transform any ‘ol button-up into the feminine classic by just taking a length of ribbon or fabric, and tying it into a bow under your collar.

Wear your button-up differently

Did you know your button-up can double as a wrap shirt? Instead of buttoning it up, wrap the two sides of the shirt around your body, tuck them into a pair of jeans or a skirt and pin it in the middle where you want your neckline to end.

Think your tee and jeans combo is a little too blah? Instantly elevate it by tying a bandana around your nape! You can even take it to the next level by using a shirt as a scarf instead.

There are so many ways to style a shirt dress, and one of our favourites is wearing it like jacket or vest to add a little oomph to a basic ensemble.
