Trend Alert: The White Shirtdress

April 11, 2006 by Christina

A six-year-old Banana Republic shirtdress hangs in my closet. It saw the sunlight three times…maybe. For some reason I could never bring myself to toss it. Thank God, because the white shirtdress is back—in big, big way. The New York Times even cited it as spring’s first true hit. And why not? The outfit is so easy and versatile. Chunky belt or thin chain belt. Four-inch heels or flats. Layered or alone. Big, bold accessories or simple fine jewelry. Sexy or refined. Edgy or classic. Wear it as you please ’cause it’ll work.

image Derek Lam presents a crisp, chic, and just-feminine-enough look with this no-button deep neckline and slightly flared skirt ($1,290). Find it at eLUXURY.com. An alternative from Jones New York ($139) has a slim summer style that won’t break the bank. Find it at Nordstrom.com. iconShoshanna’s belted eyelet dress ($319) at eDressMe.com accentuates female curves by focusing on the waistline. To shake it up a bit, here are two unique styles with Chinese collars, both perfect for a casual day out: Marc by Marc Jacobs’s Gemma Sateen shirtdress ($348) and the Chambray dress from Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent ($196). Find both at ShopBop.com. If only we could get them all.
