Trend Alert: The Shirtdress

Why: Suits are stifling in the summer heat, but that skimpy sundress you wear at nights and on weekends is no style to sport in the office. Instead of suffering, try on a shirtdress for size. This is one trend that has been spotted on celebrities and real folk alike, and there’s no question that this is the perfect professional alternative to your nicest pair of slacks and a button-up shirt.

How to Wear It: Keep chic, cool and comfortable with a belted shirtdress that has short sleeves, a knee-length skirt and a modest neckline. The simpler the print (or lack thereof), the more professional you’ll look, especially when you pair it with high heel pumps. Don’t be afraid to swap out the belt that comes with most dresses with your own, more unique belt. Tan looks lovely against white and black adds edge to a pretty floral print.

Quick Picks: We suggest this Floral-print shirtdress from Talbot’s (currently on sale for $69) for the girl on a budget, this Jones New York Signature Button Down Shirtdress ($119 at Nordstrom) for classic sophistication and this exotic Nieves Lavi Alhambra Shirtdress ($230 at Blaec) for a splash of color.
