Fashion Trend: Shirt Dresses






In my Bloggers Ball post I was hinting at an exciting collaboration with a brand and finally when the rain decided to stop and the sun came out, I managed to take photos of this simple and classic look. 
Yes, in the realm of closet staples, nothing beats a white button-down shirt dress which can be easily dressed up or down depending on your style and the occasion. 

Personally I like both longer and shorter lengths but this particular number by Bonprix* has a few side splits that add something sexy and effortless to your look whilst elongating your legs. In my opinion you can't have too many shirt dresses as different colours and styles add a little something extra to your closet and they're so easy to throw on and go. You always look put together, even if you don't bother accessorising and adding extra pieces to elevate the outfit. I love the cropped sleeve and the turtle neck collar that you should definitely leave a little open. 





This time around I decided to not layer up and left the leather jacket at home, but that could have been a nice addition if it was colder outside. I finally took out my beloved DKNY Hudson crossbody bag I got in the sale two years ago. I used to wear this gem every day but as I added new handbags to my collection this one has been loved a little less. I carry it more in the evening now as it's patent leather. 

My DW watch took a break as well and I decided to take out my good old Michael Kors gold watch that instantly adds a little more attention to detail as it's a simple piece but it makes a statement at the same time. I find that gold accessories are perfect, especially in the evening and they go so well with white in the summer months. 

Last but not least, the shoes. Also from Bonprix* are just a classic strappy pair of stiletto sandals that are comfortable, light and easy to walk in thanks to the 9cm heel, which is not too high. I love the gold detail on the buckle fastening as well because it's subtle but adds a nice touch. Surprisingly my boyfriend liked these shoes more than my other ones as he thought this pair was 'different'. I think it's because I don't own many open-toe models. 








Do own any shirt dresses? How would you style yours? Let me know in the comments!
