Three Ways to Wear A Shirtdress

The shirtdress has become a wardrobe staple for me.  Not only is it comfortable and flattering but it’s a really versatile piece.  And because of its versatility its also a great piece to pack.  I have been trying to become a more efficient packer (still a work in progress) so I am always on the hunt for pieces that can be worn multiple ways.  To say that I am overpacker is an understatement.  Anyhow, back to the shirt dress….

Here are three different ways to style your shirtdress.  Plus I have included some of my favourite spring shirtdresses if you are looking to add one to your wardrobe.

One: Add a Belt

I typically replace the self tie fabric belt that comes with the shirtdress with a belt I already have.  I love the look of a chunky leather belt paired with neutral mules for a more casual look.  And you can see how a simple belt switch changes the look – the red belt totally dresses it up especially if you add a pair of a heels.

Two: Wear it as Flowy Layer

Instead of a kimono or cardigan, try an open shirtdress over a casual jeans/tee as an extra layer.

Add A Jacket 

A jacket makes the shirtdress totally office appropriate.  I added a belt to this look to make it even more structured but it works without the belt too.  The jacket also helps transition this Spring dress into Fall.


I picked my floral shirtdress up from Winners last year, surprise, since half of my wardrobe is from Winners.  But here are a few similar floral shirtdresses from Zara.
