  • Every woman needs the perfect dress for casual as well as formal affairs. When on the lookout for the perfect dress, our favourite is the timeless Shirt Dress.

    Shirt Dresses first became popular in the 1940s and are still ruling the fashion world. The dress is summer friendly and looks great on all body types, making it a must-have wardrobe staple.


    One can wear this classic dress type in different ways. The key is to be clever with your styling. 

  •   Cinch your waist line

    A straight loose shirt dress might make you look shapeless. Nip the dress at the waist to define your figure with the help of a belt or a scarf.

  •  Accessorize

    Update your day dress with glitzy, eye-catching earrings, necklaces and bracelets to add on some serious doze of bling. Also, carry an interesting bag to add onto the drama.

  •  Add Some Pants

    If you’re not into bare legs, wear your shirtdress over a pair of leggings or pants. The dress will give the look of a longline shirt which’ll work wonders for your office attire.

  •  Layer Up

    Use the shirt dress as a jacket and play with proportions on bottoms and underneath. The Shirt dress looks great as an upper layer worn over your regular shirt and pants, perfect for turning heads and taking on the town.
