A shirtdress is so functional, yet can be so chic at the same time.  It is one of those items that I think every woman needs in her wardrobe.  Similar to a wrap dress, a shirtdress can be worn dressed down or dressed up… from work to play.  It’s so versatile.  It also can be worn in any season!

The hardest part about finding a good shirtdress is the fit.  You want one that isn’t a shift dress (aka super straight), but want it to have some shape to it.  I say that because it can come across as looking blah if it’s not tailored and fitted in the right places.  I love this one because it’s super flattering on all figures due to the lines and belt which really makes it a classic piece.  This shirtdress is also super reasonable! You cannot beat the $32 price tag!

I wanted this look to work from day to night, so I wore these funky sequin booties to jazz up the look a bit! Prior to these photos I wore a cardigan over the dress as well.  You can really do so much (or so little) in terms of styling with this piece because it’s just so classic and timeless.  I also love that it’s navy which makes it easy to wear and will be long lasting.  It also comes in a bright green which is super fun! II know I’ll be reaching for this shirtdress season after season… year after year.  Do you have a shirtdress in your wardrobe yet?
