sk any fashionista to pick one classic number from their wardrobe and it would almost always be a well-fitted shirt. Ask Rajesh Pratap Singh! Dress it up, dress it down, tie a knot or tuck it in, the humble shirt lends itself to every style your heart desires. An extension of your basic shirt, a shirt dress has a feeling of timelessness in its silhouette and tops on the utility quotient. No wonder that this season most of the design houses have sworn by this one garment that is a wardrobe classic. From naturally-nautical Tommy Hilfiger to couture-chic Christian Dior, almost every designer featured shirt dresses in his/her collection. Viktor and Rolf, Paul Smith, Gucci, Chloe, Carven and Maiyet gave a fashionable nod to this classic trend.
B town beauties like Vidya Balan, Shriya Saran, Kareena Kapoor, Avantika Malik, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, and Sonam Kapoor have extended a warm welcome to this trend. We love how Kareena wore her safari-inspired shirt dress with a cross body bag and matching pumps. While keeping the rest of it really simple, it’s also a great inspiration for a day-look.
Go for light layering this summer by wearing a vest over your shirt dress. If you are feeling adventurous, then knot the layered ganji on one side. Add shoes and headband to complete the look.
Add a shot of Boho-chic to your shirt dress by wearing it over a fitted dress. Keep the button placket open, wrap a belt around it and add headband and boots. And you thought you were not a flower child!
Get dressy by teaming a blazer with your shirt dress. With hair pulled back into a sleek ponytail and with a classic red pout, you will turn heads, no doubt.
From a perfect schoolgirl-like dress to a sophisticated beach cover-up, a shirt dress can play to the gallery. Now work hard, play harder.
