At Style Cheat, the Daphne shirt dress is a style staple. Our sophisticated, long shirt dress with a tasteful thigh slit is available in a range of twenty prints. You can dress the Daphne up or down to suit a day of activities or a decadent dinner, no matter the occasion.
You’ll accentuate your waist with the self-covered belt, and three quarter length sleeves make this beauty suitable for any season. The only difficulty is deciding which accessories to pair with your dress for a jaw-dropping outfit! Options are limitless, so you’ll need a little inspiration to get going.
Here are 3 ways to wear the Daphne dress.
#1 - Opt For All Black With Boots
Four of our twenty Daphne prints use a black background, so you won’t struggle to find a dark dress to take your fancy. Whether you choose our mono spot print or you opt for the colourful dots, we’ve got a stunning style for you to try.
Take your Daphne black and white star belted shirt dress or any other dark monoprint, and pop it over a pair of black tights. Amplify the look with thigh-high leather heeled boots, or opt for ankle-length to get sultry and show some leg. Both silver and gold jewellery will contrast beautifully against your monotone outfit so that you can add your favourite set of earrings.
A black floppy hat can add to the mysterious ensemble if you’re a hat wearer. No bad hair day will ruin your look if you’ve got classy headwear in your arsenal. If it’s nippy, add a long overcoat to match the tone of your hat, and you’re good to go.
#2 - Style With A Scarf And Strappy Sandal
Summertime calls for brighter colours than our monotone idea. A strappy sandal adds some spice to Daphne’s simple silhouette, whether you opt for flats or a heel. Enjoy complete convenience while looking cute by slipping on your shirt dress bare-legged!
Show off that summer glow, and let it pop against bright white accessories. Match a small, strappy shoulder bag to your sandals and stroll around the city for cocktails. No doubt you’ll be Instagram-ready so that you can post Boomerangs to your heart’s content.
Of course, you won’t need a knitted scarf in the sizzle of summer! For something different, the Daphne dress beautifully accompanies a twilly neck scarf. Leave the collar open to expose a little chest, and draw attention to your neck with a small tie.
You can experiment with a bold, clashing pattern on your twilly or choose a complementary block colour depending on your Daphne print. Of course, a bold necklace works too.
3. Slip Your Shirt Dress Over Jeans
Who said Daphne had to be dressy? You can undo every button and style the shirt as a duster. Take your white T-shirt and comfy jeans up a notch! Spring and autumn are prime times for breezy top layers, so you can replicate the overcoat appearance without overheating.
It doesn’t matter whether you fasten the buttons at the top of your dress for a sophisticated collar or you leave the material relaxed and unbuttoned.
Create the ultimate model-off-duty fit with your Daphne dress, flared jeans, and short boots. Our blue butterfly print belted shirt dress suits every shade of denim, so you’ll stun whether you favour blue, white or black. Match the colour of your nail polish to your print for a coordinated pop of colour, and accessorise with dainty jewellery. The refined day look doesn’t call for chunky necklaces or statement earrings!
You’re ready for anything the day could throw at you. Plus, if you’re called out for impromptu drinks with the girls, you can whip your jeans off for a cocktail bar-appropriate look. You’re a born opportunist!
