The Shirt Dress

Elegance is refusal—Coco Chanel

Of late the Shirt dress has been making fashion waves. It was one of the major styles that was showcased during the fashion week. From Marios Schwab to Christopher Raeburn, the shirt dress was backed up by several major designer. Needless to say, it has become a darling street style trend with several high street players snapping it up.

I purchased this dress, almost a month and half ago and wore it during a glorious sunny day. The shirt dress is equal parts prim and edgy. I have paired my linen, checked shirt dress with navy heels and minimal accessories. I’ve carried a polka dot bag in a similar colour scheme.

The shirt dress is also an extremely versatile piece. Wear it with a belt to show off your curves and create the enviable hour glass or hang it loose if you have a boyish figure and want some volume .

If you are conscious about the length then pair it with cigarette trousers for a chic, head-turning look.

No matter your shape and size, give this style a try and you might be pleasantly surprised. And don’t forget the two best accessories to complete the look—a killer smile and confidence.
