LovePrettyXLOFT: The Mustard Shirt Dress

LOFT Tiny Floral Piped Shirtdress in Golden Mustard

Mustard clothing will be a huge trend this fall, so it’s no surprise that this floral piped shirt dress from LOFT is such a popular item. Elaine and I gave it the LovePretty treatment – we had so much fun showcasing this dress using our “one piece, two styles” motto! To highlight its seasonal versatility, Elaine styled it for warm weather, while I layered up and showed how I’d wear it when the temperature drops.

Dress / Bag / Boots

The dress features a lot of pretty details including a small floral print, black piping on the collar, and a black fabric belt. To offset its feminine design I kept my accessories to a minimum: flat boots and my City bag. This dress can also be worn buttoned to the top, as shown in the LOFT lookbook.

This is the first item of mustard clothing in my wardrobe – I wasn’t really sure if it would suit my colouring – but I was pleasantly surprised once I tried the dress on. Mustard works well with gold, bronze and brown shades – it brought out the highlights in my hair – and I think it would look really pretty with a bronzed glowy makeup look.

      Thanks Gina! Yes – they're leggings – luckily the high boots let me get away with them – if I was wearing booties I'd have to switch to tights 🙂

      Thanks Skylette – I think tights + dresses are my favorite combo – it looks feminine but I don't have to worry about the dress being too short ;-P
