3 Reasons You Need a Shirtdress This Summer

via Stockholm Street Style

If I was stuck in a heatwave (which we are), and had to choose only one item of clothing to wear (which I sincerely hope to never, ever have to do), I would always choose the dress. I love dresses. I live in dresses. And when it comes to helping my clients choose their dream summer wardrobes, dresses are always part of the equation.

While my obsessions come and go, I always come back to the classic shirtdress. It's easy to throw on, it's flattering on almost every figure, and always looks super chic. The menswear-inspired piece is inherently cool on its own of course, but as some of my fave street stylers have proven time and time again, it's all about choosing the right accessories to make the outfit epic.

See 3 cute & compelling cases for the shirtdress below. Stay cool (even though you already are....)
