My current obsession? Shirt dresses. If smocks make you well…. appear to be in the early stages of pregnancy and the maxi dress defeats the purpose of showing off your stunning legs…then the shirt dress is a fantastic alternative. In extremely hot temperatures the light weight fabric and short hemline proves to be practically life saving. Different interpretations compliment various body shapes. For those that are blessed with a lean trim figure opt for a more fitted style such as this Kimberly shirt dress by Elie Tahari, $398.


If you want to draw attention away from the mid region then go for an oversized version…..think Carrie in that iconic Sex and the City episode when she leaves Big’s home in his shirt and belt. Trust me it’s a perfect ensemble when looking for an outfit to cover up certain areas. Intermix also has a varied selection of this summer staple and Gap has a roll up sleeve shirtdress on sale at $14.99 down from $59.50 that is perfect for casual day wear…..but be warned its selling fast!
