weekender shirt dress

Roomy shirt dresses have been my go to pieces during the weekends when I’m running errands and need something that instantly dresses me up. One of my absolute favorites this summer is this embroidered mixed media shirt dress HERE (40%off).

This denim shirt dress is surprisingly lightweight and soft. I love the inverted pleat in the back that allows for more room (baby is growing!). The prints add a lot of interest to this piece. It’s a perfect piece for casual weekends with flats if you are running errands or with a pair of heels if you take it to a brunch.

why are shirt dresses great?

  1. They are just amazingly versatile and comfortable. Shirt dresses dress you up quickly and effortlessly. There is a lot of room for you to play with to make it your own and add your personal style.
  2. They are the ultimate layering piece. Depending on the fabric, you can layer jeans or leggings underneath or a voluminous skirt on top.
  3. They never go out of style. You can always rely on them; shirt dresses will fill a gap in your closet rather than adding to the “I haven’t worn this in years bulk”.

how you can style shirt dresses

  1. You can dress up your shirt dress just by adding a few accent pieces: a statement belt, scarf or a hat.
  2. Try to layer a pair of jeans or leggings underneath it. The extra layer allows you to wear a lightweight shirt dress during the fall and this will add tons of creativity to your whole look. I like to pair my shorter shirt dresses with a pair of capri pants, a moto jacket and a statement belt like I did HERE.
  3. If you feel like dressing up, then try adding an A-line skirt over your shirt dress. It can create the cutest and most feminine date night look. Take a look how I did it HERE.
