11 Shirtdresses Perfect For the Dog Days of Summer and Beyond
We've been seeing a lot of bold-hued statement dresses lately, with Eva Mendes's daytime orange iteration at top of mind. Follow suit on this trend, but put a red, polished collar spin on it. Want to give it an edgier feel? Wear it with a leather jacket and ankle boots, too.
Sure, this is a bit of a shirtdress splurge, but we can't get enough of the sweet rose pattern alongside a crisp, schoolgirl collar and billowy chiffon sleeves. It has feminine Fall dressing written all over it.
We adore the ladylike quality of this vintage-china-printed shirtdress, but its edgier cutout details at the shoulder give it a modern appeal. While it's still warm out, wear it with high-top Chucks and a downtown shoulder bag. When it cools down, throw on a lightweight trench coat and flat boots.
What better way to style yourself for the seasonal shift than with a shirtdress? It's a perfect in-between combination of low-key and ladylike (just look to the crisp collars and sweet prints) with a more glamorous dress twist (full-skirted or long and silky, you can play with hem length to give it a formal boost). Plus, talk about a piece with versatility. If you're in for another haul of hot, hot days, then pair your white poplin shirtdress with Grecian sandals and a straw fedora. If you want to wear your laid-back sheath to work, then dress it up with polished loafers and a slick portfolio tote. Or if you're planning on taking this look to after-hours cocktails, add a sexy pair of lace-up wedges and a leather jacket. In the twilight of Summer - and with Fall just over the horizon - we've already scouted out 11 shirtdresses that will stick with us through it all. Click through to shop our editors' top picks now.
