Don’t you just love a two-in-one fashion affair? From cropped jumpsuits that secretly resemble dresses to dip hem skirts, that carry a mini-maxi vibe, the shirt dress is another versatile option to add your wardrobe.
Considering summer is a knockin’ snapping up a few dresses must be new season shopping priority, so we’ve picked out the ultimate shirt dress, and even styled it for day and night!
We’re particularly digging the Pleat Back Shirt Dress from Warehouse, which is perfect if you’re looking to squeeze two looks out one shirt dress – great for the office, and just as stylish for when you’re channelling your best off-duty style à la Sienna Miller.
And, as always, we’ve searched high and low to bring you this beauty from the beloved British high street, because looking good doesn’t have to be a financial catastrophe!
The off-duty look:
Inject a splash of colour into your look, particularly if you’re looking to dress the Pleat Back Shirt Dress down, but still want to keep the look smart. The Malene Birger Anaise Jacket delivers the right amount of print and colour, whilst no summer look would be complete without the obligatory, toe-flashing flat sandal. The Espadrille Sandal from Next won’t break the bank, and still keep your fash cred in check!
The evening look:
A great option for the work, the Pleat Back Shirt Dress makes for an ideal option to beat boardroom wardrobe blues, thanks to the collarless shirt style neck and button detail. The belted waist cinches the waist for flattering silhouette, whilst the slight dip hem detail at the back adds a stylish edge to office dressing. Add a touch of sophisticated colour with the Short Handle Sal Tote from Reiss, and slip into these Valentino Studded Kitten Heel Pumps to finish off the look nicely.
