This season shirt dresses have never been hotter- gone are the days of awkward pinstriped monstrosities that just don’t quite go with anything (we’ve all been there!). The shirt dresses of A/W 16 are bold, creative and bang on-trend. Our favourite celebs Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid have been rocking this trend lately, and if it’s good enough for them it’s good enough for us. Still not convinced? Here’s three ways you can style your shirt dress and make the most of this must-have look...
1: It’s All In The Boots
Never underestimate the power of a good pair of shoes girls! This season, faux suede knee high boots are everywhere and we think they complement shirt dresses perfectly for a look that you can wear to any occasion. Knee high boots offset the short hemline of the dress, balancing the silhouette and creating an outfit that looks feminine and daring at the same time. Add an arm cuff and oversized handbag to complete the look.
2: Layer It Up
Shirt dresses can be a great choice for an easy party outfit, but what about a more casual look? Wear your shirt dress unbuttoned at the bust over a bodysuit for an edgy daytime look. Alternatively, add a sleeveless coat to your outfit for some warmth and a pair of ankle boots for an outfit that is office-ready but still bang on-trend.
3: Work Those Accessories
We all know the rules ladies - when in doubt, add some bling and you’ll be fine! To add something a bit different to your shirt dress, pair it with an on-trend choker. Right now we’re obsessed with velvet chokers that have some diamante detailing in the centre. This creates a gorgeous nineties retro look that you can rock from day through to night- all you need is a pair of block heels and you’re ready to go!
