Hey lovelies, I hope you are having a fabulous week so far and have started enjoying summer with shorter and lighter clothes. It’s been a relief getting rid of multiple layers since spring. And the most pleasant thing, having a chance to enjoy cherry blossom which we don’t have in every part of India especially not in Mumbai. But certainly can go for minimal dresses! Lol!
Speaking of which, I love to dress up quickly and feel lighter for summer and don’t want to waste many hours for one single look, also I don’t want to fill my washer with heavy denims and than outer wears in the name fashion and style, I mean we do care for looking good but at some point we obviously want to spend less time and look ravishing at the same moment. Be it for a casual day out or for office.
In this context, I find shirt dresses more appropriate for casual and formal both occasions. You can absolutely wear a shirt dress for the office and directly go to a date night or you can pair your shirt dress with white sneakers for more casual look. On several occasions, you can pull off a shirt dress in very flattering but easy way.
In this look, I’m wearing a dark beige shirt dress In size XS, which has a collar with V neckline. Its material is very soft and made of with 98% cotton and 2% elastin. The most flattering thing about this dress is, its luxe tortoise shell buckle belt which is one of the hottest spring trends. It has two pockets at both the sides and rolled up sleeves which make it very day out appropriate outfit! Its Crisp fabric gives the whole posture a subtle high street look. And it looks even more flattering in person. Its feel to the skin is very soft and gentle. I couldn’t have been more happier about this dress as in beige is my favourite colour and when I get such a dress for ready to go look, I grab it!
I paired this dress with black block heels which were in suede, an off gold watch and some bracelets. I had my white satchel bag and staple black shades to finish off the look. I got ready for a meeting with a brand and it did not take more than 15 minutes to get dressed up with light makeup touch up. As in I did not want to spend more time with a lot dressing up so, I left my blow-dried hair open with a center partition. So overall I was successful in achieving a high street effortless look in minimum time.
I find this dress perfect for creatives, entrepreneurs, actresses and even for school girls. Such dresses are versatile and worth having in closet. The timelessness of such dresses depends upon colours and fabric. Having a plain shirt dress in neutral colours and skin friendly fabric like linen, khadi, cotton and fine silk make it all seasons appropriate and versatile a. So don’t end up buying a lot of shirt dresses in prints and patterns which vanishes with the monthly revival of fashion. Don’t spend your money, invest it. Making a basic and neutral wardrobe is investing money not splurging on. Shop this dress here.
