The shirtdress is simple, and it is definitely the most comfortable spring trend. Therefore, I love it. When you throw it on you are set for a day and you won’t feel under or overdressed.
The effortless shape makes the shirtdress magical because it allows you to feel a breeze while giving you the creative ability to add a belt and accentuate your waist, as it should be accented. This will be your ultimate go-to dress when you can’t decide what to wear. Even better, designers are taking it a step further and creating shirtdresses in all lengths this season.
It seems weird to start off with a black shirtdress, but this is spectacular. This long and flowy dress creates endless opportunities. For example, try wearing it with sandals or some skyscraper heels to be extra trendy and showcase your spring fashion ready wardrobe. The spread collar makes it almost look like an over the top robe which gives it a fun flair. All you need is a bold tie belt to replace the boring black one when you want to change it up and break up the black look for the warmer months.

Denim fever makes its continuous rounds, and it’s not always in good taste, but this season it is all the talk. Although I wouldn’t wear this during the evening, this is a simple great day outfit. Sometimes there is nothing better than an easy solution for a casual errand or brunch day to help you show off your cute spring sandals.

This white shirtdress is so sexy I can’t get over its perfection. The long sleeved shirtdress is the ultimate dress with its sophisticated design. It sort of reminds me of an Audrey Hepburn era design, but without the heavily accentuated waist. The cargo pockets give this boxy dress some sass that cannot be overlooked. Be brave and wear this with the gladiator sandal that you always wondered what to wear with, or wear in the evening with virtually any high heel.
