Versatility in a shirt dress

Look feminine, edgy or sporty by easily styling a shirt dress

The classic shirt dress is a wardrobe staple because of how versatile it can be. You could keep things casual by pairing it with pants for a laid-back look, or spruce things up with a sleek blazer and a pair of killer heels.

If you are worried about it looking too much like a nightgown, choose a shirt dress in a bold solid colour or one with a cinched waist. This will help the piece look less like something you would wear to a pyjama party.
