Hello, dear friends! Summer is officially here, and we need to have the shirtdress talk! A wardrobe staple, I believe every woman should have at least one shirtdress in her collection. Here are my top three reasons:
- A shirtdress is much easier to put on and take off because it has buttons all the way down.
- A shirtdress is as business formal as it is weekend casual, all depends on how it is accessorized. With a belt, classic pumps and possibly a statement necklace under collar, it can be client meeting appropriate; Over the weekend, throw on a straw hat and a pair of espadrilles instead, it is as relaxing as putting on the husband/boyfriend’s shirt.
- There are zillions of styles, colors and fabric to choose from, so for any body type, there is a perfect shirtdress for it. My personal favorite include the A-line, full-skirted, fish-tail and the maxi one I am wearing today.
That is all good but I have a shirtdress already, you say, then it is time for a maxi one! With the length at its advantage, maxi shirtdress can really elevate a look from everyday casual to everyday glam even special occasion ready. Did I mentioned that some of them can double as trench coat, too?
The white one I have on has a loose-fitting waist line that sits pretty low, when I wore it as is in a previous post, it was totally causal. After I put on a DIY ribbon harness, I think I am ready for a couple’s night out. If the color is something other than white (or black), a silk maxi shirtdress can also be a good summer wedding attire.
I’ve gathered a few current season designs that got my heart racing at various price points. Maybe some will also strike your fancy?
Thank you so much for reading! See you in my next post!
