One of this week’s fashion focuses is the shirt-dress. With such a simple buttoned down silhouette, the classic shirt-dress is easy to throw on and adapts to different body types with a simple belt that cinches it in and brings definition to the waist. The shirtdress is one of my favorite throw on ensembles because it is so easy to wear. It can be worn in an effortless manner with messy folded sleeves at the elbows and unbuttoned open collar or buttoned up with long sleeves for an elegant blouse-like dress look. The length of the shirtdress is key for determining its overall “dressy” factor. As a lover of vintage silhouettes, my all time favorite length is the midi, which makes this Ted Baker shirtdress one of my favorite pieces for this fall season.
This look is styled with a metallic leather square shaped satchel from Be&D’s Spring 2014 collection. Brace yourselves metallic enthusiasts for Be&D’s spring 2014 accessory collection, for they are infused with beautifully carved statement pieces in various metallic shades and characterized with chic heavy duty detailing. The pop of metallic colour of the bag sets an ideal color-blocked scenario for the abstract leopard print of the dress.
