3 Ways To Wear A Shirt Dress

For years, one of my favorite business casual staples was the classic, shirt dress.

It was an easy, office-ready piece that had the uncanny ability to transform itself into a weekend-fashion mainstay. A good shirt dress is a wardrobe chameleon than can shift from proper and preppy, to sexy grunge in a blink of an eye and a swap of a few accessories.

Now, who wouldn’t want a dress like that!?

Here are 3 easy ways to transform your favorite shirt dress and finally take it out of the office cubicle!

• LAYERED OVER PANTS

This styling is one of my favorites as it’s ideal for those transitional spring days when it’s not quite warm enough to wear a dress on its own. In order to keep a smooth and shapely silhouette, stick to your skinniest pants or jeans. A pair of sleek heels and a well-fitted jacket will keep the look from appearing too bulky or misshapen.

•  CASUALLY BELTED

It’s time to toss aside that flimsy fabric belt that most likely came with your favorite shirt dress. Instead, try out some more substantial leather belt options to give your shirt dress a bit more edge and an updated look. I love a casual camel belt knotted at the waist with daytime friendly BLOCK HEEL SANDALS or GLADIATOR FLATS.

SHOP THE LOOK:

• GLAMMED UP WITH HEELS

For a summer night, nothing beats a “borrowed from my boyfriend” shirt dress paired with the sexiest heels you own. The contrast between the causal dress and the dressy shoe make for an eye catching look for your next night on the town
