I have driven down Damen Ave. in Bucktown for years and always wondered what Oak + Fort was! Recently, on the single nice day this winter, I went on a little walk and checked it out.
And holy, wow! I didn't know what I was missing! To be honest, I only bought one thing (this dress), but I wanted just about everything they were selling. Their pieces are simple, boxy, overside, and just my style. The colors are neutral, which makes everything in there versatile and not season specific.
The dress I ended up purchasing is SO cute (In my opinion). Since layering is key in winter, this piece is perfect for Chicago winters. I've already worn it twice! I didn't have my leather jacket at this shoot, but this would be so cute under a cropped jacket. I wore a black turtleneck under this dress for work the other day and it was super comfortable and chic. I paired it with black boots and plan on wearing it again before the winter is over! Before then, I plan on wearing this dress over a white oxford button down, like they have the model wearing. It's so crisp and chic, just like everything at Oak + Fort.
