This white shirt dress from Boden has been a staple in my work wear rotation for the past two summers! A classic white shirt dress is definitely a piece I consider a work wear staple. They are classic, but still can look on trend. They look professional while giving you break from a suit (#win). Unsurprisingly then, I plan on wearing this dress, styled as I have it here, a ton this summer. Read on for some white shirt dress style tips and outfit ideas.
It’s been interesting to have a piece like this in my closet that I continually wear year after year, because I find myself styling it differently each year. This spring/summer my favorite way to wear this white shirt dress is with a black blazer, a thick black belt and a black ribbon tied into a bow under the shirt collar.
In contrast, last summer I wore it a lot with a robin’s egg blue cardigan and a blue and yellow striped ribbon as a belt. It was a soft feminine look. This summer though with fashion trend’s moving more towards classic prep, the ribbon tied into a bow at the collar was such an easy choice.
I still wanted to wear a belt because in general I find shirt dresses are more flattering with a belt. It helps break up the look. Sticking with the classic prep fashion trend I went with a wide faux-leather belt for this look.
Accessory wise, I went with my ride-or-die black pumps (seriously, I can’t live without these haha) and my look-a-like Celine mini handbag. Goodness how I love this little dupe bag. And for under $50, I am really impressed by the quality.
When I have a rare office day where I don’t need to be lugging around a ton of files (the challenges of being a courtroom lawyer) I always opt for a small handbag because I am just so stoked that I can. It’s a nice change not having to bring around 10 pounds of stuff!
I’ll link up my exact white shirt dress below, but since I think white shirt dresses are such a must-have item, I have found a few at different price points that I will also link up below. I cannot recommend them enough as wear-to-work item (clearly) but I also love how versatile they are! Here is a look at a weekend outfit featuring this white shirt dress. So versatile!
Have a great day everyone and happy shopping!
