Say Yes to the Shirtdress

As far as closet staples are concerned,  the shirtdress is near the top of my list.  It’s a versatile, compliment-inducing kind of item:  style it with sneakers and a vest in the day or wear it with heels and a leather jacket at night.

This structured shirtdress is from clothing designer Marissa Webb.  Many of her designs play around with masculine/feminine elements and mix soft/hard edges to create interesting juxtapositions.   With its crisp tuxedo bib and long sleeves, it hints at formal business attire.  In contrast, the curved edges of the tiered shirttail hem and the waist tie-back give it a feminine feel.

Whatever the style, always say yes to the shirtdress.
