boyfriend shirt dress

by Nicole Regan in

I was struggling to come up with another outfit so I threw this oversized shirt on, belted it and then fell in love because of how simple and put together it looks without putting in any effort at all. I love how clean and crisp the white looks, especially against tan skin (I don't tan anymore, this is a spray tan because I just need to ok). An oxford shirt is an obvious essential in every woman's closet, but an oversized one proves to be just as versatile. I would style this with jeans, black trousers, tucked into a pencil skirt, or half hazardly tucked into a voluminous midi skirt. I would also wear this as a beach coverup or under an oversized knit in the cooler months. It's a great layering piece and perfect for the those moments when you "have nothing to wear".

I've been collecting lace up flats, sandals, and heels like it's my job this season. They make your legs look great and are incredibly elongating. I'm all about lengthening the legs to create a leaner silhouette. Learning what looks good on your body and what styles elongate your figure takes time, but it's a great way to guarantee that you'll look good in photographs. If you aren't sure of how something looks on your body, the number one trick is to have someone take a photo of you. Stand up straight, shoulders back, cross your legs, and put the front leg out slightly more forward than feels comfortable. It creates a more vertical line for the eyes to follow, thereby making you look taller. Do you have any tricks for elongating your figure? Leave them in the comments section!
