An all-time fashion favourite of stylish mums, shirtdresses are effortless and easy to style. They’re perfect for wearing on a casual basis, but can also be suited to more formal occasions. Here are stunning ways to wear a shirtdress
Wear a loose fit
Wearing a looser fitting shirtdress does not necessarily mean wearing a baggy and oversized shirt. Rather, it’s more flattering and more comfortable. Basically, select that shirtdress that looks good on you and also gives room for space and comfort. If your shirtdress has buttons down the front or if it’s too tight they may pop out and that’s not flattering/comfortable at all.
Hem Heights and Heel Height:
Bear in mind that the shorter the dress, the lower your heel especially during the day. Wearing a knee length shirtdress with high heels can look elaborate while, a mini shirt dress worn with heels make look inappropriate. However, if the mini shirtdress is worn with a flat shoe, that’s more appropriate.
Cinch your waist:
Some shirtdress styles can be shapeless with swamp figure but you can overcome this by using belts or fabrics for your waist. You can as well add experiments to your look by using different kinds of belts. Belts will also help you accentuate your waistline for effective appearance.
Try fuller skirts:
Shirtdresses can be a bit revealing especially if you are pear shaped. This is because your figure will leave the dress clinging to your hips and thighs. You can overcome this by choosing a shirtdress with a full skirt. This will be more flattering for your figure compared to when you wear the shirtdress top without a full shirt to go with it.
Sparkle and shine
A plain shirtdress can look very plain however incorporating some colour into your outfit is not quite easy to pull off. However, in order to jazz up your appearance, you can try styling your shirtdress with more neutral accessories in a similar colour palette as your shirtdress.
Shirt dresses look simple, yet if not styled properly can look very discouraging. Update your shirtdress with trendy accessories like a statement necklace and a chunky watch as this can just make the difference for your outfit.
Layer it up:
While styling your shirtdress, why don’t you get creative with your layering? Wear it unbuttoned on top of another dress as a jacket. You can also add a bit more drama to the shirt by wearing a petty coat underneath.
