Six months ago, we would have argued that a shirt dress is the perfect synthesis of professional and casual. While the professional aspect is slightly less relevant now, that still reigns true along with so many other amazing qualities. On its own, a shirt dress requires little to no styling—a sandal, an earring, a purse, and you’re done. It also has abundant layering possibilities. Wear it undone over pants. Layer a vest or sweater over it. Belt it! Not to mention, the simpler renditions never go out of style. Below are five styling tips that prove its versatility along with 15 of our favorites to shop right now.
