Q. One of my favorite summer dresses is a denim shirtdress. I would love to be able to wear it in the fall. Can I wear tights or stockings of some kind with it or do I have to relegate it to summer storage?
- Shirtdress Stretch
A. Keep that denim shirtdress in your closet all year long. For colder temps, wear opaque tights and suede pumps or knee high boots. And consider changing the look of the dress by wearing different belts at the waist from brown and black to a suede or pony skin in a bright color. And you can also layer a camisole or sweater underneath the dress to add warmth or add a cardigan over the dress and belt it.
Take a cue from this Marc by Marc Jacobs Sabrina Sateen Shirtdress ($328 at shopbop.com) styled with leggings and ankle boots. To warm up the short sleeves, layer a thin black turtleneck underneath.
