The dress style we all need in the sunshine….

As most of you know I’m much more of an Autumn/Winter girl as opposed to Summer. However there are certain styles I’m a real fan of during the summer months: maxi skirts, kahki chinos and obviously a great white shirt! When it comes to dresses my favourite is the shirt dress. It’s cool, versatile and suits every woman I know.

When it comes to how to style your shirt dress remember:

  • The shorter the dress, the lower the heel. I mainly wear mine with plimsolls, espadrilles, or statement flats. If I do wear a heel I go for a wedge or strappy block heel style.
  • Go for a looser fitting shirt dress for that effortless look. It’ll be far more flattering and more comfortable in the heat. You can always cinch in the waist if you want more shape.
  • If your shirt dress comes with a thin fabric belt you may want to change it for a leather one. This will add some interest and make the dress look more expensive and stylish. My particular favourite is a thin tan belt – it works beautifully with a denim, black or white shirt dress.

Here are just a few shirt dresses I love from the high street for inspiration. However you choose to wear yours – enjoy – it’s a cool effortless look that you’ll love - trust me, I’m a stylist!

Have a great week-end and feel free to share this post.
