TREND: Labor Day Fashion at WIU

As the month of August sets with the summer sun, Labor Day weekend gives us one last chance to celebrate. End of summer barbecues, parades and outdoor activities mark a smooth transition into the autumn season.

This week’s Fashionista isn’t ready to let go of the warm weather, donning effortless style with a versatile shirtdress. Shirtdresses give a chic twist to a worker’s uniform, perfect for a comfortable, laid back Labor Day holiday. Menswear makes another appearence with the changing weather.

This Fashionista's lightweight chiffon adds a feminine touch to a rugged look. A similar royal blue shirtdress like this one from Urban Outfitters is perfect for an all-American holiday. Take your boyfriend's favorite button up and pair it with a belt to accentuate your waist. Don’t forget other masculine styles like bold plaid patterns, trendy denim frocks, or classic oxford shirts.

Shirtdresses are a great way to ease into the cooler weather. As the tempurature drop, cover your legs with patterned tights, faux leather leggings, or denim jeggings. Pair with an oversized boyfriend cadigan for chilly evenings. Be playful with accessories like a chunky necklace, triangle scarf, or aviator sunglasses. The best part about a basic, comfortable shirtdress is that is can be worn all year round with just a few simple additions.

So, on this Labor Day weekend, gather inspiration from the “blue collars” who got you a day off of school with a versatile (and forever classic) shirtdress.
