Today we’re going to take a closer look at the shirt dress. Not only is it a work wear essential but it can also be a perfect style for both a casual and dressy event. There are tons of different ways to style this piece and there are such a large variety of styles from solid colour to print, long to short, a-line to asymmetrical, button down to cross over the list goes on!

Let’s begin with the office wear shirt dress – It’s a timeless and comfy piece to wear, and this design is a little longer in length making it more appropriate for work

Styling a shirt dress for work isn’t hard pair it with a point and comfy bag and if it’s chilly add a blazer

A shirt dress is chic and seriously effortless especially when you combine it with a sneaker and cross-body bag. Keep it cool and casual by layering it with a denim jean and your fave kicks

Quick styling tip – try skipping a button when buttoning up your shirt dress for a more edgy look or fold the shirt back and use each button hole twice

This off the shoulder style can also be layered with a turtleneck for more warmth

Another tip for a different way to tie your belts – wrap the belt around your waist like you would normally do but don’t secure it instead take the belt under and behind the band and insert it through the belt loop

For a street style winter look pair a sleeveless shirt dress with a blk skivvy, tights and boots

This type of shirt dress is perfect for both day and night, the floral print is fresh and romantic and can be worn on its own with a boot and red lippy for a dinner date

Or keep it cool and casual and unbutton or open out the shirt dress to show off a skinny leg jean, layer with a skivvy and clinch in the waist with a belt It’s a no-fail formula that’s always fashion forward

There’s nothing more romantic than a feminine shirt dress with bow detail on the waistline. This beautiful style is perfect for a wedding or special event and needs very little accessories, add a strappy heel and simple jewellery and let the stand out bell sleeves take centre stage

As you can see the shirt dress is a fashion classic, but it’s far from basic, there are plenty of ways to style it up and make it work for any occasion!
