I’m so happy with the fact that flower print still hits the trends this summer. Shirt dress, wrap dress, frilled and t-shirt dresses, all of them are perfect to rock this hot season!
This Spring/Summer season, I became obsessed with shirt dresses and bought a few of them for the past two months. What I can say shirt dress gives you that “put together outfit” look, fits all body shapes and heights, has many variations for all seasons and most of all: can be found in any store.
Here are a few tips I always use when shopping for a shirtdress:
- The fabric is important. Shirt dresses usually come unlined so choose either dress with thick fabric or leave a room to wear a slip underneath.
- Fit. It should fit you right top and bottom. Many manufacturers use the shirt size, forgetting that we tend to be bigger at our bottom part. My solution: either go size up (make sure your dress is not droopy at your shoulders) or going for the one with a belt 9like I’m wearing). That way you’ll have a room for your hips, tights and rear.
- Belted versions are always better. Not only of the things I just said, but they are also more flattering on us. Define your curls instead of looking shapeless.
