What a summer it’s been in Europe! Since April, we’ve enjoyed months on end of wall-to-wall sunshine. This can be challenging when faced with the daily morning wardrobe dilemma: What to wear?
Meet the shirt dress, the sartorial all rounder to see you from spring, through summer and right into the golden rays of autumn. Dress it down with sneakers and a jean jacket or up with pumps and a blazer.
If you think this hardworking wardrobe staple is too much of a safe (boring?) option, then check out the fashion houses’ 2018 interpretations. You can breath new life into the classic piece by adding whimsical elements.
I’m wearing a Peanuts printed shirt dress by French Fashion House Paul and Joe sister (the heroines of romantic yet elegant fashion) in my favourite cut, nipped in waist and skater dress for that retro vibe.
