A Shirt Dress Is The Smartest Fashion Investment You Will Make This Fall

Channel your inner #ChristianGirlAutumn this season

67

It's officially "wear a sweater in the morning and regret it by the afternoon" type of weather here in sunny Los Angeles, which leaves many of us torn between chunky knit sweaters and classic monotone crewnecks when laying out our daily wardrobes.

If you're tired of having to stick with short sleeve shirts under campus hoodies with your comfy Lululemon leggings as your "go-to" uniform, allow me to introduce to you—the Shirt Dress.

An inevitable closet staple, the shirt dress features vibrant colors, flowy and breathable fabrics with a eye-catching swish upon each step. With some meticulous planning and the addition of some seasonal accessories, however, it can offer just the perfect amount of coverage and versatility for the Autumnal season.

Check out some of my favorite outfit looks:

Refined yet polished: layered under a camel trench coat with a nude stiletto and Anna Wintour-esque sunglasses.

Casual: paired with a comfy pair of Stan Smith's, a leather crossbody bag and a light cardigan tied around your waist.

Practical for the working lady: layer black glossy leather pants with a statement heel, minimal gold accessories, a classic black clutch and sleek hair.

Fall Vibes: neutral, mustard tone shirt dress paired with your favorite Doc Martens

Light beiges, orange-brown and camel tones can always work with any ankle booties and can even be styled in the colder seasons as a layering item under thicker insulating sweaters. Stripes and patterns may be on trend for the season, but will quickly wear away on functionality after Fall is over.

Accessorize with a bold, yet sophisticated trend: Snake Print

Don't commit a fashion crime by wearing a beautiful, flowy dress with heavy jewelry and a big-baller watch. Be elegant and simple by wearing a gold charm necklace, minimalistic rings and pearl studs to draw attention away from your bling-bling and instead, wear a statement pair of boots.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
