Style Theory: The Shirtdress, a classic, can be worn year after year and be easily dressed up or down. This year, the denim shirt dress reigns supreme but there are plenty more beautiful options available on the high street from chambray, to cotton to linen...
There were plenty of shirtdresses on the SS15 catwalks and the streetstylers have been fans of the classic style for years. It is such an easy dress to wear, here is some inspiration of how to style the shirtdress the 2015 way:

The high street stores have shirtdresses year after year, here are a selection of my favourites available on the high street now and ideas of how to style:
|Sonia by Sonia Rykiel @Asos £315|
Extremely pricey but one I will be looking out for in the Asos summer sale. I love the mix of (silk) fabric, will be a beautiful dress to wear on holiday with tan, flat, strappy, gladiator style sandals.
|Mango Safari Suede Dress £149.99|
In keeping with the boho style this real, suede dress is a classic, wear with denim jacket thrown over the top, black pointed flats and a black fringed bag for a cool look.
|Ralph Lauren @House of Fraser £135|
I have this shape of dress, I bought it last year. It is so flattering and looks as good with high tan sandals as it does with flip flops or white trainers.
|Warehouse Blue Belted Dress £48|
A very classic, grown up shirt dress, I would pair with leopard print shoes and a long, beige duster coat for a gorgeous, laid back wedding/ first Holy Communion outfit.
|YAS Malle Shirt Dress £55|
A cute stripe dress, wear with a bright sandal for a pop of colour.
|Mango Denim Shirtdress £19.99|
A very basic shirtdress at such a reasonable price, leave it loose or wear with a tan skinny belt.
|Zara Oversize Dress £25.99|
This could have the look of a maternity dress, but how comfy does it look? To avoid the maternity look wear with a fitted denim jacket and keep shoes delicate, flat pointy ballet pumps would look great especially in a bright orange, or mix it up with a leopard print for style twist.
|Uniqlo Ines Denim Long Dress £39.90|
Not a great image but I love the look of this dress, very sophisticated, I would wear with my bright Boden Alice heels and a colour pop bag (picking up one of the colours in my shoes)
|Topshop Hybrid Shirt Dress £40|
This hybrid jersey will work hard for you in your summer wardrobe, wear now with opaques and boots in the summer with flat, tan sandals.
|Topshop Moto D Ring Shirt Dress £40|
Finally a great, basic shirtdress from Topshop, Michelle from MyFashionable40s bought it recently and it looks fab on. Wear with trainers now and in the summer swap for gold sandals see SusieSoso's fabulous New Looks finds..they would look great with a shirtdress..
There are soooo many gorgeous sandals and shoes on the high street this year..my next post will be dedicated to them!
My favourite shirtdresses from last year...I wore them non-stop, both on evenings out and for a casual daytime look..
