What are shirt dresses?
The classic shirtdress is a style of women's dress that borrows details from a man's shirt. These can include a collar, a button front, or cuffed sleeves. Often, these dresses are made of crisp fabrics including cotton or silk, much like a men's dress shirt, but as fashion has evolved, so have the rules and our style.
Shirt dresses are a wardrobe classic that has never gone out of fashion, and every woman should have at least one that they can throw on for an easy and chic outfit. A universally flattering silhouette, they highlight waists, skim curves and add a perfect level of polish to any outfit.
Who should wear shirt dresses?
There are no body shapes or figures that should consider a shirt dress off-limits. In fact, the simple shape can be adapted to flatter curves, petite figures, complement your body depending on how you feel and what you want to highlight.
A shirt dress can add curves to leaner figure and cinch it in at the waist. Yet it can also be flattering on a curvier frame and give it an hourglass shape that shows off your silhouette.
It doesn’t matter what your body type is or how confident you feel about showing it off, as there are so many different styles and types of shirt dresses that you can wear to feel great in.
When should I wear shirt dresses?
Shirt dresses are an easy ‘grab and go’ style that can work for any season, including when it snows and rains as well as when it’s sunny and hot.
If you’re headed to the beach, a beach shirt dress can work as a bikini cover up and make it easy to go from the sand to the bar or to dinner.
For the office, go for a tailored shirt dress that will look smart at meetings as well as those after-work drinks post-5pm.
You can also make a shirt dress into a perfect date night outfit by choosing a going out style or a party shirt dress and throwing it on with heels and the perfect clutch bag. Add a leather biker jacket and you’re good to go!
How should I wear shirt dresses? What pairs well with shirt dresses?
Shirt dresses can be easily dressed up or dressed down, and if you want to make your shirt dress work for the office, the bar, the beach or even just for chilling on the sofa on your weekends then you can!
The devil is in the detail, and this includes how you style it. Wear trainers or ankle boots for an easy casual style that works for brunch, running errands or hanging out with friends. Or swap the sneakers for heels or knee-high boots for a dressier look that’s perfect for date night and going out for drinks.
