The Shirtdress: One Piece, Four Ways

Here’s a time-saver: A shirtdress can morph from polished to casual in seconds. Check out our four ways for working this staple—seen here in spring’s happiest shade—both in and out of the office.

Sleek simplicity. Let the dress do the talking and adorn with simple but beautiful accessories. [Pictured: Nordstrom Bangles, Nordstrom Scallop Statement Necklace, Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique Shirtdress]

Business chic. Power up your look with a crisp white blazer (another of our favorite pieces right now) and neutral heels. Keep things interesting with a brilliant bag. [Pictured: Cole Haan Slingback Pump, Theory Double Breasted Jacket, Elliot Lucca Tote, Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique Shirtdress]

Night out. Go glam with metallic extras. Instead of color, think exotic texture and shine. [Pictured: Via Spiga Python Belt, Enzo Angiolini Sandal, Vince Camuto Clutch, Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique Shirtdress]

Wherever weekend. Add textured everything—a craft bag and easy-walking flat, even your belt. We love the thrown-together ease. [Pictured: Fina Firenze Stretch Belt, Hinge ‘Tanner’ Sandal, Steven by Steve Madden Tote, Persol Sunglasses, Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique Shirtdress]
