There’s no questioning all the cool trends that summer 2018 brought. The intricate mix of strong silhouettes with clashing colors or bold patterns presented us with no shortage of freshness especially on the topic of dresses. While there are more innovative styles out there, one in particular caught my eye. Enter shirt dresses. It’s one of the most versatile pieces anyone can own. You can accessorize it up or dress it down as you please.
I was instantly drawn to this DVF dress because of the rust red color and gold hardware. That mixup will make it a perfect summer to fall transition. Not just that, but the top stitching gave it that edge I look for in every piece. As an “it” item of the season, you’ll find plenty of colors, prints, lengths, and detailing in shirt dresses that work to your preference. Most will come with a built in belt, which is an added bonus if you like emphasizing your waistline. All bells and whistles aside, the universally flattering fit makes it a true winner in my book.
As the seasons change, don’t hesitate to play with layering techniques – maybe it’s adding a pair of leather leggings or donning a turtleneck underneath your shirt dresses. I’m also willing to bet it looks killer with a pair of sock or lace up boots. But for the moment, you can run with a bold colored style and spice it up with blingy accessories. Or take one with a fashionable update such as clashing stripes (love this one).
No matter what profession you’re in or event you’re going to, shirt dresses work from sunrise to sundown, so go get yourself one now.
