Q&A: How to Wear a Shirtdress

Q:  I’m thinking of buying a shirtdress, since they seem to be more flattering than other styles out there.  But I’m not sure how versatile they are.  How do I put together an outfit with a shirtdress?

Greek Wool ShirtdressOmiru is pleased to bring you the answer to this style question from Christina Kornilakis and Sarah Gregory, the designers behind the vintage-inspired clothing line Sweet Tater.

A:  The fun about shirtdresses is that you can dress them up or dress them down.

For a sexy going out look, add a pair of tights and ankle boots and you’re ready to go.  And if you want a more casual laid back look, you can throw on a pair of jeans and some flat boots.

Sometimes simple is better.  You could just wear a shirtdress as is with some sexy heels.

Omiru Poll Results: Capri Pants are On the Way Out!

Omiru Poll Result: Capri Pants are On the Way Out!

James Perse Deep Pocket CapriWe asked: Are Capri Pants In or Out?

You said:  Somewhere in between.  The In/On the Way Out/Out split was almost even–so let’s call capri pants On the Way Out.

Omiru’s take: Though the weather has been heating up, you haven’t warmed to the idea of capri pants.  We can’t blame you–the mid-calf length can be hard to wear.  We look much more favorably upon the knee-length city short (especially if you’re short).  But for those blessed with gracefully long legs, go ahead and go capri. 

Next Question:
Ballet Flats are all over the shoe displays for Spring, presumably to complement the hordes of dresses filling the display racks.  But what do You think?  
Tell us, are Ballet Flats In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on
the sidebar!
