The Shirt Dress

Article by Caitlin Taylor

Yay! It's finally here! I've been waiting all year for the weather to be warm enough to pull out my summer frocks. They are so much fun to wear, and if you get the right one, it can be SO versatile!

This is one of my favourite series to write, I LOVE to show you guys how to get the most out of your wardrobes without having to spend too much money or buy a heap of things!
 
You also may have some of these pieces in your wardrobe already that you can use, and if you don't, then you know where to get them - Shore City baby!
 
So here is a gorgeous Shirt Dress you can get your hands on right now, and how to style it three different ways.....
 
the shirt dress
SHOP THE DRESS: Max linen stripe midi skirt dress $139.99
 
Such a good simple dress to start with - it will suit most people, the colours aren't too bold or bright so it will go with a lot of different things, and even better, you can move the tie belt where YOUR waist sits!
 
So here is the first way you could wear it....

 

PRINT CLASH

print clash

GET THE LOOK AT SHORE CITY: Max linen stripe midi skirt dress $139.99 | Jacqui E artist floral scarf $44.95 | Mi Piaci "Nora" sneakers $200
 

Have fun with prints - it's summer after all! The trick with a print clash it to have two very different prints, in this case a geometric print with the stripe dress, then a floral with the scarf, BUT they still have some common colours in them - the black and white.

Add some simple shoes, like trainers, or sandals and let the print do the talking. (BTW - I love these trainers from Mi Piaci, they are leather, which makes them feel just a little more dressy than a regular canvas trainer)
 

 

PRETTY IN PINK

pretty in pink

GET THE LOOK AT SHORE CITY: Max linen stripe midi skirt dress $139.99 | Merchant 1948 "Liberty" heel $189.90 | Just Jeans tropicana necklace $24.95
 
This beautiful pink is a really lovely compliment to the black and white stripe in the linen dress. The heel adds some drama to a slightly more casual dress, so this outfit would be perfect for a summer party, or even a casual summer wedding!
 

 

SO ON TREND

so on trend

GET THE LOOK AT SHORE CITY: Max linen stripe midi skirt dress $139.99 | Cotton On "Annie" top bar sunnies $19.95 | Country Road "Celia" crossover slide $109.00
 
If you love a bit of a trend every now and then, why not add a slide to this easy-to-wear dress. This cool pair of summer shoes is smack-bang on trend, but also ridiculously comfortable too! Add a mirrored pair of sunnies and you are good to go anywhere!

 

So there you have just three ways to wear this gorgeous linen shirt dress from Max, and there are plenty more ways too! All you need is a little imagination (and some great stores like the ones at Shore City haha!)
 
Until Next Time, Happy Shopping!
