Back in the early 2000s, it seemed like the only shop that offered a quality shirt dress was Farage. Sadly the price was way too high for my marketing graduate salary. About ten years ago I was lucky to receive a Farage voucher as an incentive from work so I managed to buy one of their striped navy and lavender shirt dresses and I still own it today. These days the style can be found across many retailers and there are so many fantastic options to choose from which can suit any budget.
Today’s collection ranges from $10 to $171 and the styles go from casual to corporate to special occasion. There’s something pleasantly classic about a sharp collar and cuff with a tie or belted waist which just works. Wear them with flats, heels, wedges or even boots in winter and they look fabulous. Plain or patterned, silk or chambray – there are so many options this season and most of the ones below are on sale!! Go forth and shirtify.
