How To Style A Shirtdress For Fall + A Lookbook

I love shirtdresses. Whether I'm styling them with sandals and a straw hat or a blazer and boots, theres something so effortless and chic about a shirtdress and I love to wear them year-round. 

Earlier this year I shared how I like to wear my blue and white striped shirtdress in the spring, so I thought today I would share how I've been styling it this fall. 

When it comes to making a shirtdress work for fall I think rich rustic accessories are the key. Because the classic silohette and color palette of this dress can easily work for spring and summer, I paired it with deep brown and green accessories to anchor it, and keep it from feeling too light. The pieces I chose in this instance are a simple fedora, classic leather belt and brown flats but you could just easily pair it with black if that's what you have. 


Plus, you can even swap the flats for riding boots and top the whole look off with a blazer as the temperature drops. 

Below, I've linked the exact items I'm wearing or similar alternatives in case you're on the hunt for a great shirtdress, classic belt, clutch or flats. I've also put together a quick lookbook of the last three looks I've featured here. You can view the video below, or over on my YouTube channel.  

Before I go though, I want to share a quick review of the Everlane Modern Point flats that I'm wearing here. I got these lovely shoes last year for Christmas and have been extremely pleased with them. As with most of the Everlane pieces I have acquired over the years, these flats are high quality, comfortable and classic. They fit true to size for me and luckily didn't need any breaking in before they were soft as butter.

My only word of caution would be that as with all pointed toe flats, the tips can become scuffed quite easily so keep that in mind before you purchase if you're a stickler for scuff-free shoes.
