Typically a crisp shirt remains a wardrobe staple season after season. But when you’re looking to revamp it for the current sartorial season, the genius invention that is perfect for your closet is the shirtdress. Dress it down by keeping it casual or take it up a notch by adding a statement piece, this summer essential can be paired as you please. In fact, if you’re looking for a transitional day-to-night piece, we say look no further. From a casual look for a luncheon to when you’re trying to be edgy for a party with friends, this piece will have you covered. Scouting for styling ideas to upgrade your basic shirtdress and wear it all day long? We’ve taken a basic denim button-down shirtdress from SBuys for this article. Let us show you how it’s done.
If sports luxe is your favourite street style trend, work it with this classic piece. The result? An easy day look like the one we’ve curated for you. Style the outfit with a pair of metallic sneakers that are detailed with perforations. If you’re looking for a carryall with this look, take along a black sling bag with a slogan on it. Avoid the borrowed-from-boyfriend look by completing your ensemble with silver-toned hoop earrings.
The 9-5 Shirtdress
For this workwear ensemble, work your shirtdress with a pair of straight-fit white denim pants. We leave it to you to either tuck it in or leave it all out. Switch your regular work bag for a transparent tote like the one we’ve added. You can give this look a sophisticated vibe by adding a pair of mules. For jewellery, we suggest you opt for a pair of statement earrings.
