Fashion, What I Wore

What I Wore: Shirting Around

22nd June, 2021

If Fashion Week taught me anything it’s that shirt dresses are going to be one of the big trends to look out for in the coming months. And this shirt dress by Aliette is such a great take on the style. While certain shirt dresses can sometimes veer into corporate territory, I think this dress feels a little more fashion forward because of key design elements used to give the design a more contemporary twist. The bell sleeves add a 70s vibe, while the bib feature adds an interesting layered effect and avoids the dress looking too ‘done’. When in a crisp white it’s also a chic outfit option that can be worked for day or night, work or play.

Working with white I often like to add contrasting pieces when wearing white, or I like to go in the opposite direction and layer white on white pieces to achieve a really clean and fresh feel. I opted for the latter with this look and decided on a mini Apede Mod bag to complement the dress. The gold chain handle makes for a great contrast element, while these geometric style Karen Walker sunglasses add a bold accent to this outfit—making for a great contrast to the simple lines of the dress.
