Trending Transitions: The Shirtdress

Fresh, simple, classic. The shirtdress is a style that is not only trending, but has been a staple for generations of style lovers. A twist on the crispness of a menswear shirt and the femininity of a dress, this wardrobe staple can be worn sexy or cute, relaxed or buttoned-up. As the weather flip flops back and forth from steamy to chilly these last days of summer, the shirtdress is the perfect transitional piece for navigating that tricky time between summer and autumn. Available in classic safari lines, playful pop prints, mod streamlined button-ups or romantic vintage florals, you can choose the color, print or silhouette that reflects your personality. Wear with flat sandals and bangles now, then bundle up with tights, a jean jacket and boots for fall!

1. Splendid V Neck Shirtdress: Available in timeless military green, Splendid’s shirtdress has classic safari touches like flap bust pockets, button tabbed sleeves, and a split v-neck. Pair with natural wood accessories and brown leather sandals to play up the safari angle. This dress is great for weekend outings or travel with its throw-on-and-go versatility.

2. Thakoon Addition Ikat-print Shirtdress: There is a throwback flair to this pop print dress. A vibrant ikat print is paired with classic lines to create this visually stunning dress. On trend for an art opening or after work cocktails, this playful dress works now with the sleeves rolled up or later with its full length sleeves rolled down. Pair with sandals now and then tone down the summery vibe with tights and pumps this fall.

3. Equipment Silk Brett Shirtdress: Modern marvel. The signature Equipment silk blouse is extended into this must-have shirtdress. For the fashion forward, the shirt gets a radical makeover with its straight, androgynous lines and striking red color. Pair with clean black accessories and cool metal finishes. A slim strappy sandal or black pointy toe pump completes this clean, simple dress.

4. ASOS Floral Embroidered Shirt Dress: Bohemian flair. A creamy white background is set off with colorful embroidery and a delicate blue floral print. Pair back to knee high boots and a denim jacket come fall, but for now transition with a rugged bootie or Western ankle boot. We think this would make a fabulous first day of school look, but it’s also sweet for date night.

5. Tucker Classic Smocked Mini Dress: A vintage-inspired print of rose and red hued deer grace the black background of this sweet mini dress. A smocked neckline, self-tie waistline, and mini hemline complement the sweet throwback nature of this smock. Pair with black flats and a shoulder bag for girls night out or in!
