Strapless with Shirt: Does the Look Hold Up?
While I was searching for the magazine, I tried out a couple of looks to see if I could extend the life of my strapless dresses into the fall and into the classroom.
One combination was a crisp blue gingham shirt with a cream dress heavily embroidered with blue filigree. I felt like I should be holding some chilled mugs of St. Pauli Girl. So no it was to Oktoberfest.
Another combination was a bright watercolour-y floral silk dress over a Liberty of London pink rosebud-print shirt. It was bold and wild, but not in a gorgeous Issie/Daphne manner.
But the above look (east corner) seems "just right" to me. Lovely menswear checks with a feminine silhouette. Would gentle readers give this--or somesuch version--a try on?
