Scroll for some of our favourite ways to wear the quintessential shirt dress.

Wild at Heart:

The Animal Print

Shift into neutral with an ivory and beige zebra pattern perfect for the office and special occasions. Roll-tab sleeves and an airy linen fabric make this design ideal for indoor meetings and brunch al fresco. To add a personal touch, swap the accompanying sash for a matching straw belt and accessorize with a braided envelope clutch and gold hoop earrings.


Botanical Beauty:

The Garden-Inspired Motif

Capture the spirit of the season in a blooming floral number that works in both professional and causal settings. For a waist-defining effect, opt for a thick belt with a rounded square buckle that complements the palette of the dress. Finish off your look with a lustrous clutch and matching earrings.


Into the Blue:

The Ocean Palette

Embrace summer’s most cheerful hues with a blue linen dress you can style with a playful tropical print scarf. Add geometric-shaped sunnies into the mix, along with chic stackable bracelets, and you’ll be set for a picnic, barbecue or cocktails with friends. 


Elegant in Eyelet:

The Crisp White Silhouette

Got plans for a vineyard visit or mid-day excursion? A cotton eyelet dress, paired with a multi-row beaded necklace, is exactly what you need to stay fashionably cool. Up your style game with a chambray blue straw hat and cat-eye sunglasses. Bonus: you’ll feel comfortable and look just as fabulous.


Summer Greens:

The Must-Have Hue

Fresh, calming and easy to wear, green is having a moment this season. Go for a breezy linen design that cinches at the waist and has a stylish standing collar. Commit to the colour by pairing your vibrant dress with a matching handbag and bead earrings. Insider tip: a pendant necklace and cropped denim jacket will perfect your look.
