Shirt dress … the seasonal update
If you’ve been toying with the idea of a shirt dress over the past few seasons, but not quite committed to the party, now is the time to dive into this trend with a purchase, as this spring is set to be awash with the little blighters.
I know spring seems still way too far away, but the shirt dress is the perfect piece to transition your wardrobe from one season to the next. Simply pair with an oversized coat until the weather warms up, and then retire the outerwear to your closet, working your shirt dress solo.
The new season shirt dress comes in a reliable mix of styles. It’s not all about the prim look. This time around you can snap up one of these babies with sheer details, leather collars or in a mannish vibe. The silhouette can be fitted or loose, if you opt for the latter and have a change of heart, grab a skinny belt and cinch that waist in to create a more fitted look.
Shirt dress … how to wear it.
I like my shirt dress on the simple side. This Topshop pinstripe one checks the office appropriate box, but still has a feminine edge. To downplay too much utilitarian malarkey I’ve paired mine with this season’s cute pinks. These shoes from J.Crew are screaming summer party, once they’ve done their time on your tootsies at work for the day.
I’m also loving the soft blush pink of this Accessorize statement necklace – these guys are killing it on the affordable embellishment front for spring, so take a peek.
