A shirt dress is basically a longer version of a shirt, button-down usually, slightly oversized, long, that looks like a shirt but acts like a dress.
One reason I especially like the shirt dress is that it serve from casual wear to office wear depending on your style. The pointers below show you how you can wear a shirt dress stylishly.
Wear It Loose
Unlike your normal dresses, you can allow your shirt dresses to be loose because if it is the type that has buttons down the front, then they might pop if it is too tight. We don’t mean baggy loose, but just something that gives you enough air.
Hemline Versus Heels
The general rule guiding this is that the longer the shirt, the lower the heels. A knee length shirt dress worn with heels can look quite sophisticated, whereas a mini shirt dress worn with heels has the ability to look inappropriate.
Cinch The Waist
Some shirt dresses can be shapeless and unflattering so how to keep this in check is to cinch your waist with a belt or fabric tie.
Try It In Print
While a plain dress shirt is works just fine, you may want to add a little bit more spice by rocking a print dress shirt. Make sure to accessorise in neutrals though.
You can bolster your shirt dress with accessories as they help to add personality to your outfit.
