The Find: A Versatile Shirtdress

Jun 11, 2020

If you’re looking for a bridge between comfort and professionalism, a shirtdress is a good place to start.  On a Zoom call, the collar and stiffer fabric will read more professional that a t-shirt dress.  If you’re back at the office, it’ll be a nice option for semi-casual days.

This shirtdress from Do+Be has a forgiving swingy shape and an elbow-length sleeve.  Draper James also has a selection of shirtdresses in chambray, floral print, and red tie neck.

I also found this hot magenta shirtdress from Ralph Lauren for a pop of bold color.  Anthropologie has a striped maxi dress, a show stopping floral number, and this mixed dot print Corey Lynn Calter.

Plus-size?  This blue floral shirtdress and this rusted polka dot dress from Modcloth.  Petite?  LOFT’s tie-waist shirtdress and this sleeveless WHBM shirtdress are worth a look.  Tall?  Have a look at this khaki utility shirt dress or this simple navy dress from COS.

    Not here to start a fight – genuinely want to know your opinion. How do you feel about Draper James and the recent lawsuit?

      Came here to say the same thing!

    • Belle says:

      I think their marketing team really screwed up. You advertise a giveaway and never make it clear that not everyone will be getting a dress. They look to be on the wrong side of the law, and they may end up paying for a careless effort to generate good press.

      • Cate says:

        I disagree – the Instagram add made it clear that the “offer valid while supplies last – winners will be notified on Tuesday, April 7th.” The teachers’ claim is very shaky.

        • Belle says:

          But their press releases and the media coverage they invited didn’t include those clarifications. And nothing that I can find mentioned there were only 250 dresses until after they had 1 million entries. I think the plaintiff’s key arguments are that they didn’t make the clarification of what “supplies” meant until after they’d been on every morning show imaginable, and they then sold the information of the 1-million teachers who entered. But, of course, as lawyers, we could probably argue both sides 😉
