THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY JUST FASHION NOW BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.
A shirtdress is a style of women's dress that borrows details from a man's shirt. These can include a collar, a button front, or cuffed sleeves. Often, these dresses are made up in crisp fabrics including cotton or silk, much like a men's dress shirt would be. As they are typically cut without a seam at the waist, these dresses often have a looser fit, usually relying on a belt to define the waist. Button fronts and a forgiving fit make this a flattering look for most body types. And a favorite during summer time. Easy, breezy and so comfortable it’s a great piece to have in a woman’s closet. Continue reading to see more of this gorgeous indigo shirt dress along with how I styled it with black, summery accessories.
One of my favorite bags to carry around during the warmer seasons are mesh market bags. Simple but oh-so-chic market bag inspired by the traditional French net grocery bag, these kind of bags can be filled with beautiful things and simple but elegant ingredients - flowers, beach essentials, leafy greens, wedges of fancy cheese, and loaves of bread. French market bags are not actually made in the round but rather in a large square that is then gathered quite closely on the two sides where the handles go and a little less on the other two sides to form the sack shape. This allows for optimum expansion of the bag. Don’t you think the granny smith apples complement with the deep blue indigo of the shirt dress? Plus, I think the mixture of blues is also nice for the spring/summer season.
I wanted a moodier color palette when I styled this dress which is why I went with black accessories. Funny… we did this shoot while MaQ was undergoing many tests and we had no idea what could potentially be wrong with him. I’ve had this black belt for years and the reason why I still wear it to this day is the elastic fabric that really shape a loosely-fitted dress like this one. To keep with the black, I chose a pair of black sandals. These pair in particular a very comfortable to walk in. They’re only $35 and come in tan and white colors aside from black.
This shirtdress comes in a variety of colors such as yellow, ivory, black, green, pink, orange and more. They’re currently on sale at $20 per pop. I love this one in today’s post so much, I’m considering getting more colors. I can style a shirtdress so many different ways, with sneakers, espadrilles, different types of belts, and even unbuttoned as a kimono/cardigan piece. How would you have styled this indigo shirtdress for the summer season?
You can get this complete look at a little over $60. I think all of these pieces are quite versatile and you can definitely wear them more than once, and in different seasons.
