Nothing says fresh breath of spring air like a shirt dress. Classic silhouette or oversized, super short or maxi, matched with a blazer for the office or boho accessories for the beach: the shirt dress is both timeless and trendy.
Start with a versatile length and change up your foot gear and purse for different looks befitting any occasion. Strappy flat sandals look casual and fun with a straw fedora with a chambray shirt dress. Tailored jacket and polished pumps take you to the office and then out to dinner. While the weather is still cool, wear those ankle boots or knee boots one more time and throw a light coat over your shoulders. When the temps warm up, sneakers partner nicely with this look.
Top your shirt dress with a cropped sweater, denim jacket or open shirt. Don’t be afraid to mix stripes with floral patterns; you can pull it off. Layering a mini shirt dress over skinny jeans or leggings or tights can give you a lot of versatility. A slim knee length makes a great tunic over wide pants. Define your waist with a belt or scarf.
Explore these ideas, browse these selections, and you’ll find that shirt dresses are pretty much spring’s perfect piece.
