15 Sep A White Shirt Dress
I think I have said enough about black in the last couple of months and with the weather being so infinitely lovely: white, nudes, dove greys and similar are the perfect colours to brave the heat in.
A versatile blank canvas, the white shirtdress can be styled in various ways to suit day time dressing. Here I have worn it with a pair of white Air Force 1 Lows: a must have sneaker for spring / summer (read this post for more on the history of the Air Force 1). This look is minimalist and clean and really embodies how I like to wear my clothing… Laid back and easy.
Timeless, yet fashionable, investing in a white shirt dress is something you won’t ever regret, simply because of how forgiving, feminine and crisp one looks in a white. Whether you cinch it at the waist with a skinny belt to add some shape to a loosely tailored silhouette or accessorize it with heels, the simple white shirt dress can be transformed from something casual (like this look) to something more summer cocktail party ready. I would only recommend that you take the white shirt dress into a boardroom if said shirt dress is tailored like the Kisua shirt dress I posted about and if most importantly the shirt dress is not sheer, like this one from Superbalist.
