A Must-Have Dress!
There are a few things that a girl should always have stocked in her closet ready to whip out: a little black dress, a crisp white shirt, a great pair of jeans and a classic shirtdress! Okay, so maybe the last one is just my opinion but the shirtdress has made a comeback and I’ve fallen in love with the look. You can dress it up for the office, or dress it down for the weekends. Best of all? They come in every price range and are flattering on everyone’s figure.
Not entirely office appropriate but great for dinner parties that aren’t too formal, J.Crew has a beautiful Bahia-inspired shirtdress on sale this week. Festive in all the right ways, this silk shirtdress is great for combating the mid-winter season blues and reminding you of that great vacation you took last summer or for some us, that we wish we took to Bahia, Brasil. Not to mention, with a dress like this you don’t need to pile on the accessories because the amazing print does the talking. (Sale $99.99)
Banana Republic has just added this amazing silk paisley shirtdress to its online collection. It’s a great combination of orange, navy blue, and tan that is perfect for this transition weather. You’re bright enough to cheer up friends when the snow is just too much but you’re not so bright that you look like you belong on a beach in Hawaii instead of the streets of New York. What I love even more about this dress is the fact that you can punch it up with really great accessories. Whether it’s a super trendy white bag (like the model) or bright and funky bracelets, you can’t really go wrong with the dress. ($99.99)
If you’re not sold on shirtdresses just yet, check out this puffy-sleeve shirtdress available at Macys.com. It only comes in white, but I can’t imagine it working in any other color. Paired with leggings and boots it’s a perfect outfit for a lazy Sunday. The pintucked bib makes it look like more than just something you pulled out of the ex-boyfriend’s pile. Like the model, you can (and probably should) add a belt to give yourself a defined waist. Otherwise, you run the danger of looking like a box in leggings, a beautiful box but a still a box. (Sale $14.40)
