It’s time to get started on curating a summer wardrobe- after all the unofficial start to summer, Memorial Day, is coming up next week and there is one piece that both designers and street-stylers agree should be in everyone’s wardrobe this season, a Shirtdress.
This wearable staple popped up on the runways in a medley of prints and colors, from Tory Burch’s striped collared dress to Tibi’s vibrant green ruffle hemmed look.
It’s nothing new, the style has been around for decades and soared to popularity in the 1950’s.
Inspired by the men’s wardrobe a Shirtdress borrows details from a men’s shirt such as a collar and button front. Constructed similarly to a men’s dress shirt it sport’s a super forgiving fit which makes it perfect for just about every body type.
They let you look very feminine, without taking too much effort or sacrificing your comfort.
The shirtdress really is the perfect summer silhouette and can take you seamlessly from work to a cocktail party! Just switch up your shoes and accessories to become a wardrobe chameleon in a flash.
I predict Shirtdresses will totally be this season’s new throw-on-and-go outfit. Style with a pair of slide sandals for a casual weekend look, heels for an evening event or sleek sneakers for a day of brunching and shopping. Whether you like something clean and crisp, retro and ladylike or a look that’s more boho chic, this season has a shirtdress for every style, budget, and body type.
