I’ve never really considered myself stylish.

If I could have it my way, I’d wear the same comfortable thing all the time. Some call it practical, others call it lazy. I think a part of it is because fun and fashionable in plus size wear was never really the norm.

It’s only recently that various brands and designers have started kicking down the doors to make room for us. Thank God for that. After all, everyone deserves the chance to look and feel cute.

So here, in all my fashion n00b glory, is what excited me the most when BeautyMNL challenged me to come up with different outfits with Glamour Studio’s Striped Button-Down Shirt Dress. Scroll below to see what I came up with!

OUTFIT 1: The OG SHIRT DRESS

The shirt dress falls just a little bit above the knees and feels so wonderfully comfortable. I appreciate that it subtly emphasizes my curves.

OUTFIT 2: BELTED

The belted version of the shirt dress cinches the waist and gives the overall look a more obvious silhouette. A little black belt also makes the piece more playful and slightly chicer.

OUTFIT 3: TUCKED INTO PANTS

When tucked into pants, the shirt dress immediately converts into the perfect office top. It immediately creates a much more polished look, ideal for business meetings or corporate affairs.

OUTFIT 4: LBD COVER-UP

Give that little black dress a bit more character by turning the striped shirt dress into a fun and playful cover-up.

OUTFIT 5: KNOTTED AT THE WAIST

For something more creative and interesting, knotting the shirt dress over a pair of jeans marries both style and comfortability.

I love the idea that one thing can be worn in various ways. Not only does it keep the piece interesting, it also saves me from having to think too much. I can go to work in a dress one week then use it as a top the week after.

This isn’t just efficient, it’s also liberating and 100% up my lazy-girl-who-just-wants-to-look-cute alley. Plus, it’s so comfortable! The fact that I can leave the house in something that feels like pajamas but looks fashion forward is honestly really thrilling.
