When it comes to versatility the classic shirt dress (especially in the most flattering chambray) knows no boundaries. In deed, one such as this — cut like a boyfriend shirt, and devoid of any distractions i.e. ties or details that accentuate the waist — works superbly across a multitude of outfits and looks.
On a recent trip to the airport and stumbling upon the Witchery store, I could not walk past this shirt dress which has all the elements of the perfect boyfriend shirt, and given too, my penchant for sometimes superfluous details and unusual shapes, it often surprises me by how unfussy my taste can be.
The straight, slim-fit cut of this shirt dress provides the flexibility to be worn as a light-weight coat (matched with jeans or trousers and a simple T-shirt), or for simplicity’s sake, worn on its own for a fun, flirty jaunt in the sunshine with sandals or your favourite trainers. Buttoned up or down, with heels or oxfords — whatever your style, the chambray shirt dress has it all.
