The Shirt Dress

I recently received a comment from a friend looking for summer dresses, in particular shirt dresses with sleeves.  She did not give me any more direction, so I wasn’t sure if she wanted dressy, casual, daytime, evening, structured, loose, short or long.  I decided to wing it and came up with 16 options (I snuck in one that is sleeveless..).  I love being given a challenge and I hope she likes at least one of the dresses I have found.  There are lots of other options here on sale,  another more casual one here and a few here. Happy Shopping!

  1. Exactly what I needed this morning! I have been looking for a shirtdresses online for the the last two days and love your options. #2 was already in my Nordstrom ‘cart’, might add #1 as well. Thank you!

  2. Ridge! Thank you so much. I’m going to Italy in a few weeks and I needed some ideas for dresses that I could wear to the Vatican and St. Marks. Women are requested to wear sleeves and knee length dresses and I found three I will be buying! You are amazing and I love reading your site every morning. You have a gift in connecting with a large audience of women who want to look great, yet don’t want to make a big deal about it. Thanks, this is a huge help-you are the Annie Sullivan to my Helen Keller of fashion.xx

    I LOVE this post and I’m a HUGE fan of the shirt dress. I’ve got my eye on #12!
    I recently excavated a long washed silk shirt dress by Equipment from my closet. It must be 20 years old, but I just LOVE it. And nothing is better than shopping in your own closet.
    This is the one I’ve been drooling over for a few months.
