Pair with sandals, slides, classic sneakers or ankle boots in summer. The shoes will have a direct impact on whether the shirt dress will look more casual or formal.

Go for a rope belt or a cloth belt with a double ring buckle. This is a fun look perfect for summer.

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


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.

Talk about versatility! Another shirt dress outfit idea is to make it do double-duty as a beach coverup. Tunics work especially well for this purpose.
