Shirt Dress – Weekly Wishlist

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).

weekly wishlist shirt dressJOY’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.


Weekly Wishlist – is it summer?

We all love fashion, and we all love a wishlist – so here’s a weekly wishlist with a few of our favourite fashion picks. We’ll be doing this for the next few weeks, so make sure you pop in each week if you want to see what’s on our summer weekly wishlist.

And well, is it summer? The calendar says it is, but the weather sometimes doesn’t agree! So, this weekly wishlist for summer is a mix of holiday musthaves, cosy coverups, and well, a few frivolous, fun items of course!

First up is a big old tribal statement necklace from New Look (£12.99). We love the sheer size of this. Wear it with a simple vest dress or vest top, and add an instant summery statement to your outfit. Who can resist this cute little mouse purse from H! by Henry Holland at Debenhams (£15). So cute, and perfect for your holiday change!

Weekly Wishlist summerThese Hush Puppies @ Schuh wedge sandals (£60) are stylish and comfortable. You must have these in your summer wardrobe! And GAP’s chambray top (£34.95) screams Californian 1970s to us – team with frayed denim shorts, those Schuh wedge sandals and a floral headband and you’re there.

Need a cover-up cardigan with that tea-dress in the British summer? Of course you do! Look no further than this cute bow detail cardy from JOY (£30) – it comes in a variety of shades, but we love this mustard yellow. Florals are big news this summer, but it’s a trend you can carry through to autumn/winter if you buy wisely. Florals on black will do just that. This cute wrapover blouse from New Look (£17.99) is a hit.

weekly wishlist summer 2New in at H&M, this cute little matchy two-piece (top, £24.99, skirt, £19.99) is another one of those buy now, wear now, wear later pieces – the cotton jersey will work for autumn too. We love it – the pencil skirt and slouchy short-sleeved top will look brilliant alone as well.

This super-smart suit from French Connection, left,  (jacket, £120, trousers, £89) is perfect summer to autumn work-wear. But how cute would it look at a wedding as well, dressed up with a hat, some killer heels and a cute clutch. And finally, we’re back to the cosy cover-up for summer with our absolute fave – this killer cardigan from H&M (£49.99). It’s long, slouchy, a great neutral shade, looks great belted, or not and will see you right through a British summer into autumn!
