  1. Fashion Find: 5 Fabulous Shirt Dresses To Wear Right Now

    Sunlace Shirtdress by Byron Lars Beauty Mark from Anthropologie

    The shirt dress has come into its own this season, with just about every brand and designer including this classic cut in their collection. We’re seeing lots of oversized shirt dresses that fall just below the knee, and are intended to be worn unbelted, like a large tunic. Another trend this season is the top-buttoned-up look, a look that’s influenced by ’60s mods wearing their Fred Perrys smartly buttoned up.

    If you like the belted-in, open collar look, there are plenty to choose from this season, including the new pencil-cut shirt dress.

    You really can’t go too wrong with a shirt dress. It’s a wardrobe staple that you can wear throughout the year, and is perfect for trans-seasonal dressing.

    Here are my top five favourites:

      I’m a big fan of the shirt dress, although I prefer mine without a shaped hem (they feel too much like nightshirts). The shape is very forgiving, they are structured enough to take a print well, and are suitable for all occasions. The black print one above from Country Road does look like a bathrobe though!
