If you want a dress that looks polished and pulled-together, a shirt dress is your best pick. A shirt dress can look cool and funky, or ladylike but it always looks businesslike and is a clever addition to every summer wardrobe…
The big upside of a shirt dress is that you can achieve a smart and sassy work or meet-friends-for-lunch outfit in a single garment. Not all shirt dresses are the same. Some are extended shirts, some have short sleeves, or no sleeves.
Here’s how to style yours..
If it has a collar, try the collar turned up and down and see which works better for you.
Try it with a self-colour belt, and with a contrast belt… Try it without a belt. Try the belt at the waist and on the hip. … decide which looks best.
Try it done up to the neck, try it with one button undone. Try it with several buttons undone and a flash of lacy bra showing. Try it undone to the waist, with a T-shirt underneath. Try different colour T-shirts under it.
Try a statement necklace inside the neckline and try some vintage chains hanging under the collar and down the front of your shirt dress.
Then accessorise away, with sparkling white plimsolls for weekend and holiday wear; with chunky-heel sandals, ankle boots, pumps or loafers for the office or with statement shoes for a date night.
