Everyone who knows me knows that I have a thing for the Shirt dress. It’s simple (I like understated and minimal), easy to style up or down and never goes out of style. Yes it’s classic!
Did I mention it’s perfect for any body type? All you have to do is select the details you want – buttons all the way, halfway, collars, no collars, long sleeved, cap, short or sleeveless. You can go mini, calf, maxi or knee length. The options are endless! Pockets are a must though. I can’t imagine a shirt dress without pockets whether it’s hidden or patch.
So anyways, yesterday I attended a fashion and art event and given the venue, an art house, I knew the crowd would have mostly young creative minded people. I decided to try out my deep green silk mix shirt dress for the first time, accessorizing it with a long drop necklace with brown wooden circles and an arm party of golden bangles and gold drop necklace.
This dress was a bit loose and I was going for a smart casual look so I used a leopard print skinny belt to give it some shape. Topping it off with a pair of brown block heeled sandals and a grey shoulder bag. I must say, I almost never wear block heeled sandals so this was a little new for me…
I eventually had a brief stay at the event but I was happy with how I turned out. What do you think? Also, how do you feel about shirt dresses? Are you as drawn to them as I am?
