SHIRT DRESS

A night out requires you to fit the bill without being overtly sexy.

We are just about starting the weekend which means you will find yourself at a rooftop bar in Westlands with your girlfriends convinced that you can party like you are 21 again.

Short tight bodycon dresses worked when you were in campus but you just don’t feel as confident to rock these anymore. Not after the binge eating of junk food you indulged in lately.

A shirt dress is definitely a piece you should try out. It gives you a loose fit which allows you and your love handles to be less self conscious.

It is a great piece in your wardrobe because you can style and restyle differently hence allowing you multiple wears of the same piece.

For the nighttime it is best to dial down the look by adding simple accessories. Put on a bold lip and hold your hair up and away from your face for understated elegance.

Guess what you don’t have to compromise warmth with our statement coat from last time.

You can always add a slim belt if you wish to define your waist and switch your heels for gladiator sandals and colourful African accessories for a daytime look.

A more conservative person will probably tuck the front part of the shirt dress into a pair of pants or wear leggings underneath. Either way it is a great piece to own.

I always carry a pair of sunglasses with me to the club. Experience has taught me that if you dance the night at Crooked Qz you might just walk into 10 a.m sunlight outside!

Or go fishing directly from the rave. Both of these are accounts from real life events in my youth.
