One of the hottest trends happening right now is the “shirt dress.” The “must have” closet item that transcends seasons. So what actually IS a “shirt dress”? It’s simply a longer version of a shirt – almost any shirt: long sleeve, sleeveless, short sleeve, rolled sleeves, button down, pop-over, and with collar choices and hem lengths galore. There’s a shirt dress out there perfect for everybody … and every body type, and when styled right, a shirt dress can look chic, cool and totally #OOTD worthy.
Here are 6 style tips on how to wear a shirt dress to get you inspired:
- To achieve a smart, yet summery style, pair with your favorite summer shoes and/or a woven hat to capture the spirit of summer.
Or for a simple summer twist..wear as a topper with shorts.
2. Belt it. If you’re looking for a simple way to spruce up your dress, why not try adding a belt? It’ll give you more definition and a flattering silhouette. We love this simple trick!
3. Keep it casual with a pair of slip-on sneakers or slides. Add a leather jacket to toughen up the look.
4. For a more professional look, try adding a blazer and flats or heels.
5. Make a shirt dress look elegant with strappy heels and an accent purse.
6. Transition into fall by layering. Add a sweater on top or a turtleneck shirt underneath. Pair with leggings or pants and other cold weather accessories.
