So, I’ve not blogged in a couple weeks because I have on holiday to the wonderful Dubai. A sure fire escape from the rain and wind and snow (!) why the hell is it snowing in nearly April?
Inspired by the sun and by the style of affluent, stylish expats and holidaymakers… it got me thinking of summer vibin’ corporate wear.
The shirt dress is a sure fire way to look stylish and professional with an air of summer feminism. Here’s a perfect little pastel number, spotted on ASOS but from brand ‘Even Vintage’; sold in the iconic Laden Showroom in Brick Lane, LDN.
The rounded collar and rolled sleeves give a softness to the usually formal-associated shirt. The shape of the dress allows for flattery on any shape; such as the slimline, tall model seen in the shots, but also for the curvy wearer – with confidence that the belt will pull you in in all the right places.
The colours are light and airy and the length of the skirt is perfect for the office – no worries about bending over for that pencil…
At 55 gold ones it’s perfectly affordable and versatile enough to be worn on a summer evening in the city; a lot of bang for your buck.
Wear with a soft court shoe, so as not to avert the eye from the beautiful tailoring of the dress.
