Plaid dress

Warmer Shades for Cooler Weather

My love for plaid is still going strong! I picked up this simple dress at Old Navy a few weeks ago and I wasn’t sure about it in the dressing room. I thought it had so much potential but it was a little shapeless, which doesn’t work well on my shape.

But I brought it home anyway to try on with vests or a belt, and as it turns out a belt did just the trick to give it a little bit more shape. I love that I didn’t need an extra layer to wear it quite yet, but I’m sure you’ll see this dress on repeat throughout the fall with tights and knee high boots as well.

Dress, bag, belt, booties, lipstick

More recent outfits I’m loving here and here!

Really like it. Even though you think it looks shapeless without a belt, there are days when you just need something loose and comfy to pull on with leggings and a long cardigan. In my younger days I called it a ‘hangover outfit’!

I really like this twist on the typical plaid dress patterns we see. Black and white are the simplest and most versatile colours to wear!

Kate says · 09.28.17

Me too but Old Navy calls it plaid on their website so I wanted to stay consistent !

Emily says · 09.27.17

This looks great on you, a simple yet beautiful outfit! Did you find this to be too sheer? And is sizing about tts? I find Old Navy runs all over the place, so i’m always curious to see what you think of the sizing.

I absolutely love this dress Kate. Casual yet chic!

Hi Kate, I stumbled across your blog a while ago and I love it! I have a question for you… I actually bought the same shirtdress last season and it was made of 100% rayon. I washed it once in cold water and I couldn’t even wear it because it shrunk so much that I gave it to my 10 year old sister. I really like the ON shirtdress, but the ones this season are made of 100% rayon too… Have you washed yours yet? Did it shrink and were you able to wear it afterwards?

Kate says · 10.09.17

I have not washed mine yet!

B says · 10.22.17

After seeing this dress on you in your blog I ordered it and love it! Thank you so much for featuring affordable stylish options. I belted it with a slightly wider brown belt, wore tan booties like in your pics, and threw on a long sweater coat over it for the evening chill. Looking forward to wearing it in other ways too… thanks for mentioning the tights and long boots option:)
