The Shirt dress

While the fashion world is besotted by the body cons and avant-garde gowns, my personal favourite remains the classic old shirt dress which spells the classic laid-back chic. The simple sophistication of an impeccably crisp and extra large button-up cannot be denied on any terms. It is flattering on all body types given the right styling. After all, a well-crafted piece of menswear always adds a little androgyny and power to an ensemble, while the easy-going shape is perfect for those who have an devil-may-care attitude when it comes to their wardrobes!

Another desirable element of this particular piece is that even amidst a celeb-centric fashion era, it doesn't feel faddish. On the contrary, the shirt dress is both timeless and versatile. It can look just as sharp over a bikini as it can on a cocktail satin shorts! The trick is to keep the silhouette loose and not ultra-tailored or body-con and pick a breathable fabric like cotton for the perfect look.

I personally like to style my shirt dresses in a relaxed and casual vibe while I put my hair in a low classic bun to amplify the chic factor and finish off with a swipe of my favourite red lipstick. You can pair the look with heels if you are going for a fancy lunch or brunch date with your guy or the girls, and add some white sneakers if you are taking this look out for shopping or fashion weeks.
