Shirt dress – a Vacation Closet Staple

If I had to narrow down my travel bag to just one dress, it would probably be a shirt dress. One thing I love most about a shirt dress is its versatility.

A month ago I had written how a shirt dress could be adapted to suit different engagements in a day. In this post, I will be showing you ways to adapt a shirt dress to your travel closet.

It’s the most accomplished, comfortable, easy to wear, outfit for travel or a low-key occasion as well. I am emphasising on travel because that is the time when we look for most fashionable yet comfortable outfits. Trips become more fun filled if we are in the coolest outfit.

Styling a Shirt Dress

I have more shirt dress in my closet than I show to the world and I never forget to pack one in my luggage. This time a white bohemian shirt dress is there in my trip bag. I have styled a few option to show you how to wear a shirt dress for your next trip:

  1. Pair them with slide sandals – For a low-key occasion, I prefer to wear a shirt dress with slide sandals or gladiators. I have clubbed this white shirt dress with strappy slide sandals. I am wearing a necklace of the same shade as shirt buttons to add bling to my ensemble. Isn’t it effortless yet classy?

  1. Wear shorts underneath – Some of us are not comfortable in a dress on a trip. The reason could be shorts or trousers allow better ease of movement. What if I tell you that you can wear a shirt dress over shorts and it will look uber cool. Unbutton the bottom of your shirt dress and walk like a diva. You can also wear them with over a pair of jeans and team them with pumps.

  1. Layer them over a casual outfit– Layering is again very much in trend. We use a shrug, kimono, shirt, denim jacket and what not for layering these days. Let us give shirt dress a shot in layering. I am sure you will love the flawless feel.
