They’re more stylized in design with designers now turning to longer versions of the shirt dress. Taking a cue from the trend direction, retailers too have started introducing styles of shirt dresses along with their in store collections.
How did shirt dresses first come into fashion? Let’s brush up on a bit of History of Fashion, shall we? Shirt dresses came into fashion in the 1940s & popularized in the 1950s when Christian Dior launched a “new look” post World War 2. The shirt typically looked like a button down shirt with a collar married with a full skirt and a belt cinching the waist.
Back to the present, 2016 promises an extensive array of styles in the shirt dress department. And there are plentiful of ways to style them according to your persona.  Shirt dresses are best worn in summers and they can be dressed up and down according to the occasion. And do you know what the best part is? A shirt dress can even be turned from a formal wear to casual wear to party wear just by adding/subtracting accessories.
