    Moodboard: Shirt dress

    Essential chic office style for the professional tomboy! If you aren’t a dress person the shirt dress is a more masculine option…there is enough of a style statement and it falls on the smart side of casual so you can wear it from the office out to dinner. It’s timeless. The shirt dress is not too delicate or dainty – it has an essential line which fits as a shirt in the upper and drops down to the knees, brought in at the waist with a belt (totally optional). The shirt dress apparently dates back to the Marie Antoinette era – she was said to have worn a long cotton white vest of male style; definitely a more comfortable option than a corset!

    This one was coupled with tights and knee high boots – this can be worn just as well with ankle boots and leggings or without – it’s easy and effortless which is why I love it! Shirt dresses also give you the option of wearing cufflinks – I love these Emma Watson HeforShe ones in support of the gender equality campaign. I accessorised mine with lots of bling and accessories (fast-track glamour we call it) plus white gives you a palette to play with – Vogue have just published a nice article called ‘Bling Up Your Basics‘ which focuses on the same concept. Enjoy playing around with the look – it’s pretty easy and when you are busy, that is exactly how you like it.
