How to Wear a Shirt Dress to Wear a Shirt Dress

Winter weather doesn’t mean you can’t dress up and if you opt for a shirt dress, then you’re sure to have several styling options available to you. Learn how to rock this classic, fuss-free cut as we show you how to wear a shirt dress.

Choosing the right shirt dress

Opt for a shirt dress in a more relaxed cut so that you have room for movement, it should end just at or above your knee. If your shirt dress has buttons down the front, a too-tight fit may cause them to pop. If you’re pear-shaped, try choosing a shirt dress with a full skirt to flatter your lower half. If you’re apple-shaped opt for a shirt dress that’s a little straighter to flatter your figure. A shirt dress in a neutral shade will give you plenty of opportunities to wear it but opting for a bright colour or bold print is also a great way to turn heads.

Styling your shirt dress
Some styles of shirt dresses can be quite shapeless and swamp your figure. Overcome this by cinching in your waist with a belt or fabric tie. This will easily and effectively accentuate the appearance of a waistline. When opting for shoes, consider the season and your hemline, knee-length shirt dresses work with all heel heights making them a great option.

How to wear a shirt dress in winter

Start off with the basics – a snug layer under your shirt dress to keep you warm. Opt for a pair of thick tights and a camisole over your underwear to keep your core insulated. Add your shirt dress and add layers of warmth with your top layers. Go for a pair of knee-high boots to keep your legs warmer, add a thick woollen scarf or snood to warm up your neck and then finish off with a belted coat to enhance your waist.
