A huge trend this season is the shirtdress, especially in striped printed cotton. I have added a few shirtdresses to my spring and summer wardrobe because they are so versatile and can be dressed up or down. They are also lightweight, and thus cool to wear on a hot summer day. I love striped patterns especially because the juxtaposition of the masculine shirting fabrics and the feminine structure is very fresh and lovely. I found this Veronica Beard dress on the Forward by Elyse Walker website.
I am wearing it with J.Crew statement earrings that I bought a year or two ago similar here. I styled it with a leather bag in a similar shade for a pop of color and white framed sunglasses from Zara. I love the ruched asymmetric detailing on this dress in the crisp cotton fabric. I have also seen this dress in white and black at Nordstrom’s. I also bought this more affordable version for every day wear at Zara (which currently has a myriad of beautiful cotton shirtdresses right now).
I like the knotted detail in the center and the floral on striped print. I have seen similar dresses such as this one which is currently on sale at ASOS. I am wearing a vintage woven basket bag and white jade bangle with the knotted dress and Alexander Wang heels with both dresses.
