SS06 Fashion Trend: Shirt Dresses in the Shops
Top Shop Linen Shirt Dress -Simple, but I'm not sure I like the material.
Now this Top Shop shirt dress is mega-stylish. The color is bold, but it totally suits!
On the left is a tunic dress by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent that is perfect for daytime, while the dress on the right by T is more suitable for night-time.
I LOVE this AKA New York Shirt Dress. The flowery patterns are SO pretty. Lovely!
ABS is always on the spot in being 'inspired' by designer labels. This Eyelet Shirt Dress is absolutely perfect for this season.
If you don't like plain clothes, you might be interested in this printed shirt dress by Nil Lotan.
Tunic dress with dress by T-bag. I really like the subtle vertical stripes (since vertical stripes can be quite flattering.) I also like the other details on this dress -see the rollup sleeves and the tie-up at the neck.
C&C California Classic 70's Button Up Shirt Dress -This summer, keep the shirt dress above the knee. This long shirt dress is not pretty.
Polo dresses by Splendid -very sport, although I'm really not a big fan of wearing such preppy clothes as casualwear. These are probably more suitable if you actually went to a country club.
Ya-ya Air Belted Shirt Dress -Shopbop calls this a shirt dress, but I think it really is best to wear it with the jeans. The leather wrap really makes a difference though. If you do buy a shirt dress that looks exactly like an over-sized shirt, then it's best to add some details like a belt.
This Lux Fruitie Tuttie House Dress is probably one of the most affordable. And it actually looks really pretty and cute too. If only they sold it in the UK Urban Outfitters!
The dresses are available at their respective websites, Neiman Marcus or Shopbop. Oh, and remember the Stella McCartney shirt dress from yesterday's post? (Just scroll down)
The one Mary Kate is wearing isn't the Stella McCartney shirt dress, but it's a fantastic inspiration of how to wear it in real life. MK's solution is simply to wear barely-there-shorts underneath!
