Equipment Tegan Midi Dress in Denim and Barry, $298
It's mid week and time to talk about a wardrobe staple that should be in every career women's closet, the shirtdress. They're easy to throw on in a rush when you want to look polished and can be dressed down with flat sandals for weekend wear. At the moment I'm in love with the above Equipment Tegan midi dress - it can be both classy and sassy and will be easy to take from summer into fall with the addition of boots and a blazer. And now, a few options I would love to have in my closet, found from my guilty pleasure, Shopbop!
Club Monaco Eve Dress $198; Tribune Standard Slashed Shoulder shirtdress $397; Juicy Couture Yorkshire Foliage Dress $228; T by Alexander Wang Silk & Mesh Combo Shirtdress $285
Thayer Shirtdress $298; Thakoon Asymmetrical shirtdress $790; Splendid V Neck shirtdress $108; Thakoon Addition Seamed shirtdress$425
From playful patterns to simply chic solids, there are plenty of options on the market to please everyone. One of the best things about shirtdresses are that plenty of them fall loosely enough to help hide "fat days" and conversely belting them gives you a sexy hourglass silhouette.
Since I like to practice what I preach, I had one of my coworkers snap an iPhone photo of me Monday in the silky ikat print shirtdress I bought this weekend at Anthropologie. I decided to sass it up with a thick black and gold belt and pointed wedges but kept my jewelry and handbag simple to let the pattern take center stage.
