Here is a look that is straight off the Chado Ralph Rucci runway.
Looks like shirt dresses will still be in style for Fall. Dark tones and earthy colors are key.
The skinny belt is worn just below the hips and is loose creating a relaxed, casual look that is still work appropriate.
To create this chic look, find a loose fitting shirt dress like this one from Banana Republic or this one from Barrie Pace. If your dress doesn’t already come with a belt, just add a skinny belt in a dark color. Black and brown look best.
Handbags are simple. If your dress is a dark, earthy color like in the above picture, choose a natural leather (or faux leather) bag in a similar shade. You don’t want something too big, because that will take away from the simplicity of the dress. Anything from a clutch to a normal sized handbag would look quite nice. See the earlier post on handbags for a great example.
For shoes, you can choose a dark pump, wedge, or even a tall boot. Shirt dresses are very versatile and this will give you many options when choosing your accessories.
