Shirts That Are Dresses

I think shirt dresses are supremely cute. If you know me, you know that I am a firm believer that menswear on a woman feminizes her image even more–explaining my propensity (fetish?) for wearing only mens’ watches. Right now it’s a Stuhrling Original, if you’re curious. But I think the key to pulling off the shirt dress, which is characteristically lacking a waist (men don’t really have much of one, you see) is to cinch it with a tie, ribbon, or (my fave) a belt. Pair it with some tights or go bare-legged and crazy–just make sure they’re heels you’re wearing. Oxfords could be overkill.

    I love them all, especially the DVF. I about died at the prices, but a girl can dream. I feel too fat to wear them now but hopefully I can wear them this spring and summer!

    And the great thing is you can always just try out the concept by grabbing your BF/Dad’s/Hubby’s dress shirt, cinching it with a belt, pairing it with some leggings/tights, and you’re out the door.

    I just bought an adorable shirt dress from “Shabby Apple” and they offer 10%off to first timers that sign up for their emails!

    Very cute & “Spring-like” – I particularly love that DVF top, it’s different!(I hate going somewhere and seeing the SAME outfit on someone else…)
