I have a shirt dress that's gathered at the waist. What kind of belt should I wear? Sheri
Shirt dresses are having their moment in the sun this season and for good reason—their versatility gives you endless styling options. Changing up your belt choice can give new life to the same piece and with all the varieties of stylish belts to choose from, you can literally wear your dress a different way each time.
Lucky for you, there are a few ways to belt a shirt-dress:
For a relaxed boho vibe, choose a woven belt of a medium width. Create a casual look by pulling the dress out over the belt to give it a little fullness. Accessorize with some wedges and a longer length necklace. Add a fringe cross body bag to really bring out the ’70s-inspired vibe.
A skinny belt worn at your natural waist (smallest point of your torso) will give you a sophisticated, tailored look. Add a structured blazer in a bright color to take your look to the next level. Finish with a pointed-toe pump to elongate your legs and some classic jewelry.
If your dress already has a gathered waist you can choose to skip the belt all together as well for a casual day.
