Its been a swift week for me. Nothing exciting or path-breaking to report and the weather’s still been humid and kind of warm.

But the thought of working on some interesting layering ideas has got me excited and eager for cool weather too. I’ve had particular reader interest in the ‘shirt- over- dress’ layering style and I did a post in the past which could be work appropriate in a relaxed kind of way. However this one’s quite casual and could be a wonderful idea for a weekend picnic or barbecue.

The way to make the look work is to wear a solid colour shirt over a patterned dress. Pick one of the colours out of the pattern to contrast well yet keep it all tied together. Colour block accessories will add some more fun to it. I kept jewellery to the minimum, a rose gold watch, bracelet and tiny earrings worked just fine!

Share your feedback about this look and any other shirt over dress ideas you have tried in the past.

Hint: Chambray shirt over a striped dress can be quite cool too. Try your own ideas and see your wardrobe expand!!
