The Baro Shirt is one of our new Shirt Dresses for SS20. Made in a light-weight Cotton with a crush effect, the Baro Shirt is a versatile piece that you will wear all year round whether worn open as a light weight Jacket or a Summer Dress.
Below are some styling suggestions to help you find the best way for you to wear it.
Above, Kellie is wearing it open as a light-weight Jacket over her Scoop Tunic and Harlena Skirt. Adding a feature necklace brings the outfit together.
What a difference a necklace can make!
Styling it with a few of the buttons undone opens the neckline framing the face nicely. However, doing all the buttons up to the collar is perfect for the cooler seasons.
Tying the waist belt to the back helps create shape at the waist.
Rolling up the sleeve is perfect for Summer while still giving you arm coverage.

Is this the best styling option for Kellie?
Sometimes you have to find a way to style a piece that enhances your assets and create flattering lines which means it is all about trying on and being experimental in the changeroom (or at home).
We styled the Shirt with the tie to the front. Kellie has an ample bust so the tie position is perhaps too high for her and we think we can find more successful styling options for her.
This styling option is more suited for more petite frames and those who are shorter in the torso.
We all have parts of our body we prefer to disguise and Kellie often finds pieces that have too much fabric on the hip area are less forgiving than more form-fitting garments.
Styling the Baro Shirt with the Lawson Vest creates interest with vertical and angular hem lines which draws your eye away from the hip area.
There are buttons and button loops on the inside of the side seams which create beautiful sculptural shape.
You can also try styling the Shirt with the tie to the front and pulling out the Shirt to bag out slightly over the waist. This creates a more relaxed look.
Insert side pockets are essential.
We hope you enjoyed this styling guide to our Baro Shirt.
