4 Ways to Style an LWD
A shift dress looks good on most body types. The one shown here, by J. Crew, is made of a stretch cotton denim which enables it to hold up to scrubbing when you encounter those inevitable spills. Oh, and it’s got pockets!
For a summery Cape Cod inspired look, pair the shift with these cute graphic accessories from the new spring Marimekko x Uniqlo collab! The retro red sunnies give a pop of color and the chic rope bracelet reminds me of an adult-ified version of the white sailor rope band permanently affixed to my wrist each summer while growing up.
Playdates or errand running? Pair your white shift with an unbuttoned denim shirt (lighter than a denim jacket but gives the same effect), some white sneaks, classic aviators, and a necessities-only striped cross-body. A denim headband keeps the hair out of your face.
Does the thought of wearing sneakers send shivers up your spine? That’s OK, girlie-girl, I’ve got you covered. Pair your shift with a lady-like handbag and low-heeled sandal. Top with a cardigan that pulls some color from the bag. The snakeskin on the sandal and bag also add the benefit of incorporating some extra texture to this look!
Feeling like a cool cat? Try this hip, mod look by pairing your shift with a thin, short-sleeved turtleneck, some graphic Mary Janes (many color combos available), and a bold red lip. This fun ball-shaped bag is only $15, which is perfect because Natty Gals don’t spend a lot of money on trendy items!
Transition to Fall
Because of the heartier denim construction, this dress will also transition well into the fall months. Adapt the Modern Mod look by adding a pair of tights, leopard coat, and cute beret! Alternately, try a tall boot and moto combo.
