I have been on a total closet cleanse with the onset of summer. Therapeutic as it was, it also helped me in finding something that I’ve been looking for quite some time now. My silk shirtdress!
Shirt dresses are one of those pieces everyone needs in their closet. They are a great go to when hopping to meetings or even for weekend brunch. Just throw it on and go.In the sweltering heat of the summers, we all encounter those days, when we don’t want to spend time mixing and matching outfits, and just want to throw on a dress and step out. However most of the summer dresses usually aren’t professional enough, hence, the genius of the shirtdress. Doubling up as a crisp shirt, the collar adds a level of formality while the cut still gives you the comfort of a dress.
When looking for a perfect shirtdress, the key is to find one that’s straight, but not too wide. It’s better to pick the dress in a neutral shade like grey, black, beige etc as it renders it to be more suitable for work.
A shirtdress dress adds just the right amount of feminine flair to the quintessential everyday button-down, while still feeling light, effortless, and chic. This particular shirt-dress has a neutral shade and a lovely fit, and has been an essential staple in my 9to5 wardrobe. Casual and comfortable this button down works well with sandals and sneakers for a casual outfit. On dressier occasions I clinch the waist with a belt and contrast the Charcoal grey with burgundy block heels. There are countless ways to wear a shirtdress (think booties, scarves, tights… the possibilities are endless). So many options for one simple dress. Today, I decided to show a versatile take on the shirtdress by pairing it up with a pair of leggings and dressing it up a bit.
So, for all you ladies looking to freshen up your closet with a new piece, I highly recommend running out for a great shirt dress.
