What’s the easiest, comfiest, yet totally chic, and most versatile dress you can wear? A shirt dress. So, the perfect shirt dress is on this week’s easy Weekly Wishlist to ease you out of January and into February.
A shirt dress is just a great piece of clothing. Great for work, great for during the day and great at night. Just choose the right print, the right colour, the right cut, and the right fabric and you will have the perfect shirt dress for every occasion.
Let’s start with H&M’s amazing black leather shirt dress (£149.99). Boots, thick tights, a big cardigan, scarf and hat – perfect day wear. A little clutch, killer heels, and a jacket – perfect for an evening out.
If you want print in a shirt dress, try a monochrome floral, like our chic tropical floral from New Look (£24.99), or big, bold florals at J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams (£49). Or go for something out-there with French Connection’s printed front panel zip shirt dress (£130).
JOY’s bright blue cobalt flared shirt dress (£50) is great for those days when you need something glamorous, but covered up! Denim is a great choice for shirt dresses.
New Look’s Mod style 1960s shift shirt dress (£22.99) or H&M’s belted short sleeved style (£29.99). BHS always have some great shirt dresses for summer – this year’s striped chambray sleeveless version (£30) is lovely.
GAP’s cotton shirt dress (£44.95) in grey is a great spring/summer work go-to. Finally, another sleeveless shirt dress, with contrasting buttons, fitted skirt, and a military feel (£65) from Star by Julien Macdonald @ Debenhams.
