Last summer, I was all about the romper. I wore them everywhere and while there is still a place in my heart for the romper, this summer has quickly become the year of the shirt dress. It’s practically pajamas only more socially acceptable. And as someone who always needs to be comfortable in her clothes, I’m having some serious feels for the shirt dress. At first, I have to admit, it was hard to figure out how to style it so that it doesn’t just look like a potato sack, but with some experimenting, it’s become one of my most fashion forward pieces. Today I’m sharing three ways to wear a shirt dress that are my trusty go to styles in hopes you’ll be inspired to try this comfy chic dress.
Throw it back to the 90’s
Grab a plaid top and cinch it around your waist 90’s-style. Add some sneakers for the ultimate casual look that’s also comfy for running errands. Bonus points for rocking some 90’s sunnies, like these full circle ones and a fabulous black velvet choker like this one.
Glam it up with a skirt
If you’re wanting a more pulled together look for work or school, just slip a skirt on over the top of your shirt dress. Wear a pair of heels and add some beachy waves to your hair for a gorgeous glam casual ensemble. For sunnies, there’s no better choice than a pair of cat eyes with big lenses.
Get boho chic
Grab your favorite kimono and rock some booties for a boho chic look. Accessorize with a chunky necklace and some aviators.
The shirt dress in each of these styles is by Fight Apparel. It’s roomy, comfy, and breathes well (which in the desert is important). I own several pieces from this fun faith-based shop and recommend it to everyone who compliments my outfit when I’m wearing one of their pieces. This particular piece is versatile and works with any of these looks, which is why I adore it so much!
Hopefully my little ode to the shirt dress inspires you to add one to your wardrobe this summer. But hey, if you don’t like being comfortable and looking fabulous at the same time, that’s on you (sarcasm).
