This Timeless Style Can Go from Work to Play With Zero Effort!
We’re in love with shirtdresses; a shirtdress is one of the most flattering dress styles that any woman can put on this easy, breezy spring season. Age and size has no hold over this amazing spring trend because there is an option for everyone. Hem-length is what you make of it this spring, so choose a dress that is flattering and comfortable for you. Look for feminine details such as ruffles and tucking, and more rustic elements like large pockets and buttons. Monica Cruz, sister to Penelope Cruz and designer for Mango, shows the perfect formula for wearing a shirtdress: casual structure. The ultimate effect is effortless chic. Shirtdress options are limitless, so choose your perfect shirtdress and wear it everywhere.
How to Wear a Shirtdress
Don’t cover up your shirtdress. This dress is a one-stop shop and perfect for work, play, day or night all by itself. Here are some tips for completing the perfect look in your own shirtdress:
For work, keep your shirtdress buttoned up, and when it’s time for your date after work, just loosen a few buttons on top and bottom and you’re ready to go.
When it comes to finding a shoe for your shirtdress, look for croc embossed sandals, t-straps, and/or pumps. Any heel will travel nicely from the office to dinner with the girls, but if you’re in for a long day of shopping, try a pair of trendy gladiator sandals.
A crisp and clean handbag in a rich chestnut brown color works well with the sharp collar and buttons of your shirtdress. Other fabulous handbag options to pair with your shirtdress include ombré shoppers and croc-embossed clutches.
Always define your waist when wearing a shirtdress with a tie or a skinny belt that has a bit of texture to it.
Lastly, accessorize your shirtdress with stacked bangles in a variety of sizes and coordinating colors. Choose a pair of short but dangly earrings that complement your bangles. The stylized collar on your shirtdress allows you to forget about the necklace.
Like the legendary little black dress, the shirtdress should also be a staple in your closet. This spring, find your perfect shirtdress; throw on a few bangles, a pair of heels, a bag, and you’re ready to go!
