Shirt dress for summer

Outfit formulas

A shirt dress is a casual shirt that’s extended to create a dress. This item has always been a wardrobe staple, and finally became a real star. 

The shirt dress is a real summertime classic. It’s cool, stylish and can be worn both casually and formally.

However, its effortless vibe isn’t always so effortless to pull off. That’s why you should know how to style this dress, what’s the best way to accessorize it and where to wear it.




You can wear the shirt dress for summer on it’s own. For example, a mini shirt dress with scoop hemline is great for the athletic women, because it will highlight the tanned legs, while a looser design cinched at the waist with a thin nude belt is gorgeous for a fuller figure.

Let’s see how to wear the shirt dress this summer.

Cool outfit ideas:

Simply pair a shirt dress with a pair of white sneakers. This one is an endlessly versatile combo that can be adapted to your personal style. You can complete the look with some overlapped bracelets, a cinched belt and a cute shoulder bag in a nude color. Don’t forget about the sunglasses in case it’s too sunny outside!


You can go for a sky blue colored shirt dress and style it with a pair of minimalist sandals with metallic accents. Grab a bright yellow clutch for a pop of color and a sparkly gold nail polish for a touch of glam. The perfect look for a night out with your best friends!


If you want something eye-catching, you can go for a safari style look. Some golden necklaces and a pair of aviator sunglasses in pale pink and gold can add a touch of glam to your outfit. To temper the look and wear it at the office, too, instead of golden bracelets add a simple watch in a nude color and an oversized bag. Worn with a blazer will be the perfect combo for a day at the office.



The shoes are very important when styling the shirt dress for summer. For a casual appearance, opt for ballet pumps or sneakers and for a glamorous night choose sexy stiletto or high-heel sandals.

For a casual-chic office look opt for a pair of pumps or flat sandals and if you are simply in love with the boho-chic style choose to wear a pair of ankle boots.

Update your looks with modern aviator sunglasses, cute leather belts, stylish blazers and wear layered necklaces and statement bracelets.


There are endless possibilities to mix&match the shirt dress. You just have to pick the one that suits you best and rock this trend!
