Day 10! The last and final outfit in my challenge. I’m going to miss styling those pieces every day. … The shirt-dress is back being tucked in and used as a shirt. It really is supremely comfortable worn this way, despite the length having to be stuffed in. I’ve styled the Citrus Ripples silk scarf with this outfit – it’s one of the most complex designs I’ve ever painted.

Styled with cream trousers and a linen blazer, the subtle citrus colours create a vibrant spring look. A little bit of pattern in your scarf and shoes can make a light coloured outfit more unique. Try the same scarf with dark wash jeans and a blue blazer for a completely different vibe in autumn or winter.

If you’d like to catch up on why I’m styling a shirt-dress in ten different ways, you might want to read my first post, which explains the whys and wherefores of the #10x10challenge and #onedressthirtyways. Today is the last outfit, but if you’d like me to style more outfits like this, do leave a comment below.

The scarf is a lovely 180cm length, which makes it easy to style in several different ways. A double loop as above, or draped once over the shoulders as below both work equally well and change the feel of the outfit too. The former is more suitable for cooler weather when your neck and chest might need to be kept warm; the latter works for spring and summer as well as more formal occasions. You may be unaware that silk can be worn all year round – it wicks sweat and keeps you cool in the summer, and retains heat so you stay toasty in the winter.
