How to Style a Shirt Dress

Whether you are going to work, out on a date night, or just running errands, there is a shirt dress outfit for your taste!

Typical shirt dresses are made of cotton, but they come in many materials such as silk, chambray, denim & more.

Whether you prefer to buy a shirt dress itself of style a man's shirt – à la Carrie Bradshaw – the choice is yours!

With denim (think high-waisted, straight-leg, or wide-leg jeans), wear your shirt dress with several (or all) buttons unbuttoned.

I love this easy-breezy pairing of wearing a shirt dress with shorts! Reach for a crisp white, black or colorful shirt dress worn over a slick pair of high-waisted tailored shorts.

Over Shorts


A classic pair of wider leg dress pants with sensible shoes and a shirt dress is an easy pairing. Great for those preferring a looser, tunic-like aesthetic.

Over Dress Pants


Give your shirt dress outfit high-fashion vibes by wearing it unbuttoned over a tee or tank with a pencil skirt and sneakers, flats or sandals.

Layer a Shirt Dress Over a Skirt
