What is a shirt dress you ask? It is basically a shirt that is longer than an ideal shirt and therefore can be styled like a dress. Where can I get one you still ask?

You can decide to buy or create one if you don’t want to spend a dime. I’m not a tailor or designer you tell me. Worry not because you can borrow your brothers, husband or even boyfriends over-sized shirts and Voila.

You can dress it on its own like a dress, just add a slim belt to accentuate your waist. Pair it with killer strappy sandals, gladiators or even a pair of converse.

You can cement the look by layering a blazer over your shirt dress if the weather is gloomy. You can also layer it over a mini dress, shorts or rompers because it does not limit you on creativity.

This particular shirt dress is made of chiffon fabric limiting me to wear it on its own because it is translucent. I layered it over a camouflage vest and pine leggings. My goal was to get a chic look while still channelling my inner tomboy.

The pair of low- heeled ankle boots and matching satchel bag injected an edgy sophisticated flair to the entire look.
