I ADORE a good collar shift dress, and this one by Topshop is not only “pretty” but also very versatile.
The white collar tends to scare most people off in thinking that this dress can be worn in cooler months. Don’t let the collar fool you, this dress can still be a true adversary on your quest to look ladylike and chic when it gets colder out. Just pair it with a classic style purse and some sophisticated booties (along with some fleece lined tights for all you cold blooded people out there), and you’ve got a great look!
wear it now: dress, sunglasses, purse (similar and less expensive) & flats
wear it later: dress, purse (similar and less expensive) & booties (similar and less expensive)
I am loving so many pieces by J Crew right now, but this ruffle sleeve top definitely tops them all (pun intended). It is a top that can easily be paired with a jean, skirt, or nice pant and also is a great transition piece.
For warmer weather (like what we currently still have), I love it with a white jean, cute heel, and dainty shoulder bag. When the weather starts to cool down a bit, it can easily be tucked into a corduroy skirt and paired with a fun animal print mini saddle bag and ankle booties. Also, if you are someone whose body temperature is cooler than average you can easily throw on a pair of cute fleece lined tights with the second look to stay warm.
Hope y’all enjoy this new series!
