Shop the Look:
If you are looking for an out-of-the-box shirt dress outfit idea to transition into fall, then wear it on top of your favorite jumpsuit for a light layer effect.
Why wear a shirt dress alone, when you can wear it basically as a kimono or duster? For summer and even for transitioning it’s a great layering piece, because of its thin, light fabric, in contrast to the thickness of a duster. It also has a more minimal feel than your average kimono, since it doesn’t have prints and is not silky.
This wrap shirt dress is an old piece from my wardrobe, but I love it because it’s not your average shirt dress as it brings this knot detail which allows the front of your outfit to be visible due to the cut. I’ve paired it with another old piece I adore: this linen jumpsuit from Reformation, which I’ve been trying to figure out how to wear other than at the beach, as it has an open back and this detail makes it a bit too revealing for the city.
Lesson learned: You can layer a shirt dress over and under anything, hence, there is an infinite world of shirt dress outfit ideas.
Wishing you all a happy Sunday. x
