Let's face it, we have all spent many a morning staring endlessly into our closets awaiting inspiration….. clutching at one favourite piece or another and wondering exactly how to put a fresh spin on it so that it can be worn again without anyone noticing!
Here at Chasing Unicorns, we are firm believers in slow fashion, in building coveted collections of clothing that will last and inspire you a lifetime. We're here to take you through some of our most treasured pieces and show you how just one exquisite piece can be styled to create three amazingly different yet absolutely wearable looks, from festival ready to school pick up our style it three ways series has you covered.
A firm favourite the world over our beautiful Light My Fire shirtdress  is not only the most stunning dress but one that can be styled in a myriad of different ways to ensure that you not only get maximum wear out of this beauty but that your style game is always fresh, inspired and uniquely on point.

 

ADD A JACKET AND BOOTS

The Light My Fire shirt dress is the sort of style that is versatile enough to take you from day to day life to out on the town in all your glamorous rock and roll glory. With the addition of a slim-fitted leather jacket, some ankle boots, a casually knotted slim leather wrap belt and some red lipstick you have an outfit that is sure to see the night and all its adventures through. This is also a great day look for when the weather gets a little cooler but not cool enough for pants! The ankle boots add a casual vibe to the look that helps to balance out the glam sequin trim for day wear. The key to styling this look is to choose a jacket, boots, and belt in the same tone as the gorgeous black silk crepe dress, this will ensure chic cohesion within your outfit.

 

TEAM IT WITH A STATEMENT SKIRT

Proof that sometimes when it comes to fashion, thinking outside the box is always best! Styled here with a glam vintage lurex skirt, the light my fire shirtdress shines in all its glory as a billowy sleeved blouse. If a phenomenal vintage lurex skirt is not something you have laying around then there are still plenty of other skirt alternatives to recreate this look! Pair the shirt dress back with a flowing silk skirt, a long line black leather style or even a gorgeous long flowing cotton option for a more day to day look. Style this look back with a mass of silver cuffs, turquoise rings and a slightly tough and edgy looking silver-buckled belt. In this image, the skirt is teamed with a pair of black ankle boots that are hiding under all that glorious vintage lurex, but the shoe possibilities are endless and really it comes down to whatever is most comfortable for you! This is a look that can take you from your morning coffee to work or out to a girls dinner and you cannot beat that for versatility!

 

ROCK IT WITH SHORTS

Whenever we see sequins our minds tend to take us somewhere ultra glamorous where high heels and matching handbags are part of the deal. This doesn’t have to be the case, sequins make the most fabulous daywear that will have you feeling chic, a little sparkly and oh so amazing all day long. Here, the Light My Fire shirtdress is tucked into a pair of vintage denim Levis for the ultimate in relaxed glam styling. This is a look that is ready for festival good times, a beach romp, grocery shopping or afternoon drinks….Simply paired with a unique necklace, a statement ring or two and a simple black leather belt. The beauty of this styling allows the sequin shirtdress to shine as a very edgy top whilst the cut of the higher waisted shorts creates a fabulous clean silhouette against the billowing sleeves with their glorious hand-stitched sequin trim. Shoes are always optional at Chasing Unicorns….but this look could always be teamed back with a chunky leather heel, ankle boots or black slides.
