Style Theory: The 2014 Shirtdress, cool, sharp, comfortable and versatile, can be worn in town or to the beach over a swimsuit, a chic, more structured alternative to the boho dress..just add a wide brimmed straw hat for Riveria perfection...
I have realised I need more dresses like the shirtdress that are a good length (just above my knee) and cover my arms. I am beginning to love this flattering style (maybe it is my age?!) as it looks so chic with a pair of strappy flat sandals for the beach and strolling up to a beachbar. Here is how the designers and streetstylers are wearing them...
And here are are some beautiful shirt dresses to be found on the high street now:
|Mih Shirtdress at Matches was £220 now £154|
Love, love this shirt dress, the idea cut, shape, colour, sadly even reduced to £154 still waaayy out of my price range.
|Glamorous denim swing dress at Asos £26|
Love the fact that this is a cotton blend, denim. It would look great thrown over a bikini with gold strappy sandals.
|Denim and Supply by Ralph Lauren at Asos £90|
This is a loud print but looks good, the fabric drapes beautifully and it would look great with a pair of lemon espadrilles for the beach, or with some nude strappy sandals on a evening out.
|Topshop Aloha Shirtdress £40|
Wear this with a pair of sliders for a cool edge.
|Yumi Anchor Print Shirt dress at House of Fraser £60|
A fit and flare look, so cute, I would wear with little pointed white and silver ballet shoes like these:
I think I need these shoes in my life, so so fabulous on.
|Hobbs Iona Dress at House of Fraser was £110 now £55|
Gorgeous dress if you are brave enough to wear white, fab shape and great length. However, I would be covered in mucky kids fingerprints within two seconds of putting it on!
|Mango Tencel Shirt dress at House of Fraser £44.99|
This would look great with jewelled sandals and a straw trilby.
|Dune sandals at John Lewis £69|
|H&M Hat £7.99|
|H&M Shirtdress £34.99|
My favourite dress, I love the look of this, I have ordered it so I will let you know how it looks.
|Gap shirt dress now £25.99 (in store more expensive online )|
I have bought this one too, a great beach dress.
There is my round up of my favourite shirtdress available now, I really like the look it is quite grown up and elegant and will be such a lovely look on a summer break away.
A few outfits from this glorious week of sunshine, I have been serously into boho tops!:

Need to work on a tan and those legs and tummy and the rest..was out bikini shopping it was enough to get me cracking on 'The Shred'! More about that in a another post.
A little quick addition to the post this is my gap shirtdress I am wearing today along with a spray tan...it hides a multitude of sins!
Are you a fan of the Shirtdress? I would love to hear your comments as always, Frances xx
