15 Chic Shirt Dresses.

I wrote not long ago that if last year bore the summer of the caftan, this one brings the summer of the shirtdress for me. This is my favorite style at the moment. A few of my favorite picks at all price points in the collage and even more linked below…

P.S. I’m partial to headbands with these dresses.

P.P.S. If you’re still in the market for fresh footwear for warmer weather

P.P.P.S. Wedding guest dresses. And I should say that this mother-of-the-bride dress is getting a lot of attention — a fancy shirtdress!

  1. On the summer of the caftan (2020) and the summer of the shirtdress (2021) — yes! I think we’re all ready for a little bit more polish as we *hopefully* are at the tail end of the pandemic? Or at least entering a post-vaccination society?

    Such great picks here! I love how timeless the shirtdress is. It simply works at any age!

    I was drawn to the J. Crew eyelet maxi too — I couldn’t commit because of the potential alteration costs with it being 56 inches long! (on someone just 4 inches over that in height, haha!)

    1. Hi Mia! Mine arrived and is floor-grazing, but I think that with a little ingenuity you could tie the waist in such a way that you hike up the skirt a tiny bit, or wear with mules with 1.5″ or 2″ heels!!
