A shirtdress can seem plain and shapeless on the hanger, but in reality it is a chic and versatile piecde to have in your wardrobe. Here are some tips for styling a shirtdress.
~ A well-fitting shirtdress means no pulling across the chest or buttons that pop.
~ Many shirtdresses are on the short side, which is why they look good with flats.
~ Changing the belt that often comes with a shirtdress can make it more interesting and figure flattering. Try a leather, chain or rope belt to add some style.
~ Choose a shirtdress with a slightly A-line or flared bottom if you are pear shaped.
~ If a shirtdress is too short to wear as a dress, add a pair of leggings.
~ Collarless shirtdresses have a softer and more feminine take on the look.
~ Balance out the masculine vibe of a shirtdress with jewelry, or play it up feminine accessories.
~ Use your shirtdress as a layering piece, wearing it partly open to reveal a camisole underneath, or all the way open like a long jacket.
~ If your shirtdress has sleeves, roll them up for a sportier vibe.
~ Try wearing a jacket or long boyfriend sweater over a shirtdress. Add some classy jewelry and fabulous shoes for a casual work look.
~ If you have a defined waist, choose a shirtdress with a slight taper at the waist, or you can look boxy. A drawstring waistline will give you some shape too.
~ Cotton shirtdresses offer a sporty / casual look, while shirtdresses made from silky, flowing fabrics give a more elegant or artsy look.
