You may not believe me, but I have loved shirtdresses since before they were "cool". My favorite was a black matte jersey number by Esprit that I had during grad school. I would wear it unbuttoned with the belt tied behind me as a "going out" jacket over skirts and jeans. By buttoning it up and tying the belt in a bow at my side it became a chic little day dress. I loved it. And then I left it at a house party and never saw it again. I didn't say it was a happy story.

I've finally found a worthy replacement for my dearly departed favorite shirtdress. This linen shirtdress by Calvin Klein is going to be perfect. It will look effortlessly stylish with chic espadrilles for summer and will do double duty as a light coverup when worn unbuttoned over a tank top and long pants. For a trendy vibe I'll wear it over skinny jeans with flats and a wide belt. Work in a creative-casual work environment? Simply pair this dress with menswear inspired trousers for a glam office look. So many options, so few days in the week. See, that's why I've pledged my eternal devotion to the shirtdress!
