Must Have Dresses | Shirt Dress

Getting back to a closer look at each one of the Ten Must Have Dresses In A Women's Closet continuing with the Shirt Dress.

The classic shirt dress also know as the shirtwaist dress is one of those styles that never really leaves the fashion consciousness. With mid to late 1950s television began to reinforce the shirtwaist as a mother’s uniform and Christian Dior making it part of the "new look" of the 50s, shirt dress became the iconic dress that it is today.

The dress has changed in it's silhouette, color, and fabrication, from men’s tailored shirts till the waist with a full skirt to the tiered shirt dresses and the shift shirt dresses of today.

It is a practical, versatile and feminine style of dressing that can be worn dressed up or casual. From the classic tartan shirt dress to denim, shirt dresses look modern as well as classic with ease.

Another fantastic way to wear shirt dress is in modern, fun patterns. Designers like Marc Jacobs have iconized the shirt dress with quirky prints and silhouettes.

Shirt dresses are also stunning in the classic whites and blacks. With little embellishments and accessories, you can make them unique and a one of a kind piece.

Shirt dresses are now also available in maxi forms. They have a nice boho feel to them, and give a one of a kind look on the wearer.

Now a days, by mixing designs the shirt dress is taking a completely new form and hence one of the must have dresses in our wardrobes.
