Sure a plain, white oxford shirtdress is the obvious safe choice, but once in a while you need to make a stronger statement and there isn’t a better way of doing so than with an interesting pattern. If your shirtdress has some color to it or simple geometric shapes, than you won’t need to think as much about accessories as if you’d wear a simple white one since it won’t be necessary to add a bunch of jewels to make it more interesting! Have a look at how elegant and refined this outfit looks, the clean, straight lines really make the dress a statement piece of clothing rather than something ordinary to wear!

The really amazing thing about this trend of shirtdresses is that there are a lot of different variations of this particular piece of clothing. Don’t be afraid of length and go longer. This way you’ll look more feminine as well as gentle and romantic.  Although more often than usual, a shirtdress is just a slightly lengthened version of your classic button-downs –  it doesn’t have to be. Be bold and try a midi-length dress. You can go for a length just bellow your knees or to you ankles and even to the floor.  It’s the same classic concept with a different type of effortless beauty!
