Styling a shirt jumper dress for winter Funnily enough, for years I'd thought of neutrals as pale shades such as white and cream.  Eventually, I twigged the spectrum includes a ton of other options, ranging from black to grey and from brown to (best of all) navy.  I love the colour and have been bringing it into my wardrobe whenever possible lately (check out my latest fitness look).  So, when I spotted this sweat dress with shirting hem on one of my far-too-often late night ASOS sessions, I found myself wondering how to style it with other neutrals, without drowning the pale shirting hem.  Needless to say, this is not a look for facing the elements in and rather one suited to indoor events - or uh, for exploring glasshouses...

The shorter length of this dress would go perfectly with OTK boots, but since feeding my Lost Ink obsession last week with a shoe haul, I couldn't resist whipping out these pom pom beauties for the first time!  Whether we realise it or not, the majority of our shoe wardrobes can be described as neutrals, but in the winter the real fun comes in finding dark boots that still manage to stand out.  Personally, I'm all for skyscraper heels and embellishments such as laces, cut-outs and pom poms.

Rediscovering this chunky knit scarf has reminded me of how uhh-mazing extra-long scarves can be in balancing outfits, especially those that feature unusual dimensions - like the drop 'waist' of this dress.  Then, all that remains is to continue accessorising with standout neutral gems such as a black, navy or grey bag and decide whether you want your jewellery to complement or steal the show.  As I've said a million times, I adore dainty jewellery and so opted for a multi-band ring and teeny-tiny ear cuffs on just one ear.
