There are a number of things I love about fashion. How it truly expresses your personality. The way pieces fit perfectly together. The way trends take over the fashion universe and how everyone embraces a trend in a unique way. All of these little details are the reasons fashion and clothing design warm my heart.

So why am I going on and on about my love for fashion? Well, I see this piece I am styling today as one of my fashion “risks”. You may be thinking why. Why is a simple, mustard yellow shift dress taking a risk? Well, for one, the colour, the cut, and the style – not really my usual go-to.
However, what I love most about this dress is the pop it presents in a look. How it catches peoples’ eye when you are walking down the street. You can dress it up with another fun colour (hot pink, I would suggest). Or you can keep it casual with an oversized cardigan and warm blanket scarf (like I did here).
This pocket dress from Du North was super simple to style. For a cozy fall look (because my main style quality this season has been cozy), throw on this shift dress, a comfortable blanket scarf to keep you warm and of course a long, dark cardigan. You really don’t need a third piece for this ensemble to look great, but a third piece is always a good idea. I particularly picked a blanket scarf that followed an orange-yellow colour scheme. This draws the bright colour out, but also balances out the bright yellow.
