I think I am officially in denial that it is Winter! As I sit here typing, I am wrapped in a blanket with an oversized jumper and fluffy socks on, but I also have about 20 tabs open on my browser with cute summery crop tops and floaty dresses that I am desperate to buy… plus today’s post is about all about the shirt dress! Not exactly a Winter friendly clothing option – but definitely one that is on my ‘wardrobe essentials’ list, so I thought it was necessary to share! The shirt dress is such a  versatile piece and can work for any occasion. It’s also perfect for those days when you have no idea what to wear but still want to look ‘put together’ (ie. me, everyday!)

Five ways to wear a shirt dress:

  1. 1. Wear it to coffee. Pair a striped shirt dress with sneakers and a leather jacket for a casual chic day time look.
  2. 2. Wear it to the office. Try a black shirt dress, belted and teamed with heeled ankle boots and a blazer for a sleek office look.
  3. 3. Wear it as a beach cover up. Go for a maxi length shirt dress and wear it unbuttoned over your ‘kini while you (sensibly!) soak up the sun!
  4. 4. Wear it as outerwear. Unbutton it all the way and you have a chic lightweight jacket. Wear it with jeans and a cami and a pair of killer heels.
  5. 5. Wear it as an oversized shirt. Tuck it in to a skinny pair of jeans or denim skirt for an effortless cool look.

Oh and as we are now 18 days in to Winter over here, I suppose I will soon need to face facts (and stop buying crop tops!) and share some more Winter appropriate content! Although, I am heading somewhere warm this weekend so it will probably have to be after that!

    They are the most versatile dresses! I have worn one a few times to events like school reunions and things where I am not sure how dressy or casual to be, but I know I want to look back at photos and feel like I wore something comfortable and timeless. This one is perfect for coffee and I am with you. My wishlist is all summer white dresses, cute tops and summery handbags. EEp!
