Nothing beats a loose, billowy shirt dress in a sweet statement print. It's the lazy girl's saviour when it comes to looking polished with minimal effort required. I love the digital snake print and longer line of this Willow dress; the preacher collar and side splits also serving to modernise the simple silhouette. Subtle, but so necessary.

Keen to sport your own statement shirt dress? Check out a couple of my top picks to get the look:

Selected Silk Printed Dress (ASOS)
Whistles Granite Print Tunic Dress
Selected Marble Print Shirt Dress (ASOS)
Religion Luck Sheer Shirt Dress (ASOS)
Whistles Concrete Print Shirt Dress
Glamorous Swing Shirt Dress in Bandana Print (ASOS)
ASOS Shirt Dress in Scarf Print

Pair these with clean, minimal accessories to anchor your look and you are good to go!

  3. i completely agree. it also comes in handy that our mild australian winters sometimes allow us to go barelegged (as you have so aptly demonstrated in your post) when donning a shirt dress/gigantic oversized blouse acting as a shirt dress.

    and if the weather fails us then a pair of leather leggings never go astray.

  4. What a nice looking boot you are wearing. I think it is very difficult to keep up the fashion unless you're are regularly reading blogs on fashion.
