The Find: A Casual Friday Shirtdress

Working in a professional environment, casual Friday isn’t always so casual.  A collared shirtdress is a nice option for those who can’t wear jeans or weekend attire.  And this Uniqlo dress delivers on both style and price.

This Uniqlo shirtdress is ($39) and comes in three colors.  I like this navy print the best.  For a professional office, I would wear it with these navy slingbacks.  For a more casual office, I like these short Everlane block heel sandals.

Love shirt-dresses?  This striped, midi-length shirtdress from Eliza J is nice.  This emerald green 1901 dress is a great look.  Plus-size?  This Rachel Roy Collection dress is a winner.  Maternity?  This Dorothy Perkins dress is great.

    I love the concept of a shirt dress, but I’ve tried no less than ten and I swear they all look awful on me. I’m not sure what it is, but it makes me so sad.

    The Eliza J midi-length shirtdress also comes in plus, and is in the half-yearly sale!

    Probably too detail-oriented of me but it bothers me when the back of the dress is longer than the front and so exposes the inner side of the fabric.

    I am currently interning in D.C., coincidentally working amongst the trade associations in the government relations. I was a read this article, and I am realizing that my dresses that I wear as business professional seem to come off as more business casual for your standards (i.e. Uniqlo shirtdress and the midi-length shirtdress from Eliza J). What are some more business professional dress suggestions? Thanks!

      I would look into MM Lafleur dresses or Calvin Klein. You should be looking at simple sheaths.
