Simple Summer Sophistication: The Shirtdress

The classic shirtdress has seen a resurgence on the runways, and we couldn’t be happier! While designers have recently reimagined the iconic dress in an array of fabrics, lengths, and details, one thing remains the same: it’s unbelievable versatility.

With its roots in Christian Dior’s “New Look” couture designs of the 50s, the shirtdress was instantly glamorized by Audrey Hepburn and other like-minded style icons. Since then, it has carried a level of effortless, sexy sophistication.

With its simple structure, long and lean silhouette, and easy-yet-feminine fit, the shirtdress looks good on every body and works in every season.

Fashioned in cool-wearing fabrics such as cotton and linen, the shirtdress is a wear-now warm-weather staple that can transition from day to night and week to weekend with just a change of accessories.

Worn loosely buttoned with a pair of starlet-worthy sunglasses, a gorgeous hat, and strappy sandals during the day, the shirtdress can make its way to evening outings with a lightly cinched belt and a statement necklace or an armful of bangles.

No matter how you wear it, you’ll love the way the shirtdress will give add simple sophistication to your wardrobe!
