Summer Essentials: Shirtdresses for Work

Jun 6, 2022

Shirtdresses are perfect for summer.  For a casual office, dress it down and wear it any day of the week.  For a professional office, dress it up on Fridays for work.  Here are a few that caught my eye.

This floral dress from Tahari looks great on the model, iffy on the hanger.  It’s a pretty summer dress for less-than $50.

This shadow-stripe dress from Nanette Lepore gives basic navy a boost.

The print on this FRNCH dress is perfect for the office.  Add a black or white blazer and a sleek pump to finish the look.

Thie striped Proenza Schouler dress is the most expensive one here, but it’s worth it.  A shirtdress with drama.

This dress from Vero Moda Curve has one of the prettiest floral prints I’ve ever seen.  Since I know plus-size readers likely experience disappointment when items don’t come in their size range, I must express my sadness that this fine frock only comes in sizes 12-24.  (It’s selling out quickly in the larger sizes.)

    I have a shirt dress I bought at Old Navy in high school (I’m 33 now) that is still going strong. I bought it kind of big then so it still fits now. Every time I wear it I get so many complements. The shirt dress is the most comfortable dress ever and will always look classic.

    Honest question – can you all wear things with sleeves without sweating profusely? Even with the AC in the office and even with sleeveless I feel too hot with sleeves.

    • Whitney says:

      In the summer, I think it just depends on how breathable the fabric is and whether I’m going to be moving around a lot the day I wear the item. Deodorant is definitely key for helping to keep things fresh.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
