An Easy Way to Wear a Shirt Dress | OAK + FORT | Temps d’un Café for a quick and trendy outfit
The shirt dress is definitely not something new for us women. It allow us to be somehow dressy and put together while being comfortable and casual. I have been wearing this type of garment for a very long time and it seems like it’s never going out of style. Here is an Easy Way to Wear a Shirt Dress from OAK + FORT
An easy way to wear a shirt dress the Burberry way
Styling a shirt dress inspired by the iconic Burberry look
If you have not noticed by now, Burberry has a special place in my heart. As many people, I was very skeptical when Burberry announced their new branding. I would be lying if I told you that I liked the idea of having a new Burberry logo. Actually, it made me sick to my stomach knowing that my all time favourite brand was changing everything. Well, not everything but you know what I mean. It took me a few months before accepting the new print, logo and art direction of the famous British house. Fortunately, some classic items from the collection did not change at all (ouf!).
OAK + FORT, my new favourite Canadian shopping destination
The quarantine life has been about discovering new brands and online stores. I’ve been familiar with Oak + Fort on social medias, but never actually knew what they were all about. Most of their prices are quite interesting with a few exceptions but their sales are great.
This Canadian store provides accessible items with a minimalist approach without compromising the quality-ish. I was impressed with some of the items I received but I also had concerns abut the quality of others. In the end, I decided to keep everything because the fit and shape were all amazing.
Choose a shirt dress inspired by the Burberry trench coat
An easy way to wear a shirt dress is definitely with knee-high boots, a casual purse, sunglasses and/or hair accessories. In my article “Simple Tips to Get Ready Faster in the Morning“, the shirt dress was my number one tip. It gives you an elegant, put together outfit without trying too much. To have the Burberry aesthetic, I obviously had to wear my favourite rain boots and bag from them. However, if you don’t own anything from Burberry, simply choose a neutral pair of rain boots and choose your purse accordingly. Second step will be to find the right dress. The Burberry trench is made from their famous woven fabric and has become an iconic fashion statement. The original trench coat is crafted in a beautiful beige colour that will never go out of style. Luckily, OAK + FORT had the exact same colour in a cotton fabric. The shape is very boxy, which personally, is the reason why I fell in love with it. You could also go with a different colour, like white, but you might loose the Burberry aesthetic quite a lot.
One last touch before heading out
Rediscovering old items in my wardrobe is a true passion. Indeed, throwing my clothes and always buying new ones is something I hate doing. I love the idea of owning timeless pieces or items that can easily be revisited every now and then. The Prada Baroque Round sunglasses were, back in the days, the trendiest pair you could own. I’ve always thought these sunglasses would go out of style very fast but surprisingly, Prada has been restocking them every single year. The Prada Baroque give you a funny look but I’ve always liked the oversized shape of them. The only advice I could give you is to maybe stay away from aviators for this particular outfit. Since we are already wearing casual rainy boots, a more elegant pair of sunglasses will balance this casual look.
