Five Ways to Wear: One Shirt Dress


So, we tackled how to wear the little black dress, what about the remainder of our wardrobe? A casual shirt dress is practically indispensable to a modern girl's wardrobe, and with so many varied ways to wear it, I didn't know where to start...

(Note: A few of these items are now unavailable to buy, if this is the case the link will take you to the store's site but not the item listing, apologies!)

Can you say Serena Van Der Woodsen? Pair your shirt with a slinky crop top, over the knee boots, tights, a chunky necklace and a carry-all handbag for a day to night look with buckets of sex appeal.

Take your favourite staple out for cocktails with the simple addition of shorts, notice-me shoes, cute clutch and a shrug. A statement necklace like the one shown will draw all the attention and jazz up any plain shirt.


Rolled up boyfriend jeans and flat brogues contrasted with a waist belt and girly floral necklace, all tied together by your simple shirt makes for a very trendy way to face the day.


It's easy to put a vintage twist on any old shirt dress; just add a loose, high waist skirt, leather satchel, and feminine accessories like this bow head band and charm necklace. For that authentic vintage look, these plaited strap court shoes do the trick.

For a cool college look, layer your shirt dress over lace leggings and a relaxed fit tank, then simply wear with comfy-but-cute shoes, stylish day bag and optional coordinated stationary!

What ways do you choose to wear a simple shirt dress? Have your eyes been opened to more potential possibilities?
