Whenever I go shopping I try to make sure I can get a few different looks out of every purchase. Yes, I am all about that two for the price of one life! If I can’t a rock a piece throughout a few different seasons then I’m not buying it. Of course, there are a few exceptions but you catch my drift. So this past summer when I stumbled across this super cute shirt dress from Zara, I had to have it because I knew it would work perfectly as both a short summer frock and a layered winter slay.
Now, I got to rock the hell out of my dress this summer but I couldn’t quite figure out the perfect way to style it for a winter look. That is until I was back home in Detroit with my family for Christmas and I didn’t have anything to wear to our annual Christmas party. I was trying to get my sparkle on but couldn’t quite find the sequin dress I was looking for, so I said screw it and grabbed the shirt dress. At first, I was going to wear it as is, but I decided to jazz it up by giving a little off the shoulder action. I paired it with a pair of Mossimo High Waisted Skinny Jeans from Target and my favorite Just Fab Peep Toe Booties and the rest is style transformation history.
It was pretty easy to get the off the shoulder look. I unbuttoned the top 4 buttons and pushed the neckline of the dress towards my shoulders. Once I felt like my shirt was secure and that my boobs wouldn’t pop out, I buttoned the rest of the buttons up and voila a little Christmas shoulder goodness.
Who says you can’t rock your favorite summer dress all year long?! All you have to do is find the appropriate accessories for the season– like leggings, boots, and sweaters and let your summer goodies live all year round! I know I sure do!
