Here Are Chic Ways to Wear a Shirt Dress to the Office Mix and match the dress with clothes you already own!

Office attire is hinged on two things: (1) comfort, and (2) ease to put together. While shirt dresses tick both of these requirements, most feel that there's only one way to wear them. Well, it's time to debunk this myth! As shown below, you can revamp this workwear staple with simple pieces that are already in your closet. 

The Default Way

When selecting a shirt dress, opt for an A-line silhouette, which is the most flattering type for all body shapes. Another pro tip is to choose a color that either matches or complements the rest of your outfit. This way, it can seamlessly be incorporated into your workwear wardrobe.

Monochromatic

A simple way to re-wear your dress is to use it as a top. Employ a monochromatic color scheme for a seamless look. This technique will also elongate your frame, instantly making you look taller since you're wearing just one shade. To break the monotony, slip on a pair of pastel-hued pumps accented with a pair of metallic statement earrings.

 Polished Athleisure

Comfort is key especially when you're working from nine to five. And as we know, wearing dresses can hinder our movement. Keep things stylish yet comfortable with a pair of side-striped trousers underneath. Button the dress halfway down and slightly tuck in one side to create a waist. Finish off your look with some low heels for an instant height boost!

Denim Friday

Srpuce up your frayed jeans by layering with your favorite shirt dress! The trick in successfully pulling this off is to choose the right dress silhouette that matches the cut of the jeans. A fail-proof example is an A-line shirt dress paired with straight or skinny jeans.
