Our obsession with the shirt dress started after the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle stepped out in a stunning bright blue style by Veronica Beard during her visit to the Kingdom of Tonga in October of last year. The dress ticked all the right boxes, featuring pockets, a belted waist, and stylish slits on each side.
It’s not hard to see why Meghan opted for the super style; the shirt dress is incredibly versatile, comfortable, and chic – making it our go-to for easy morning dressing.
As the warm weather is starting to arrive, the royal approved style should be a permanent addition to your Spring wardrobe. It comes in an array of colours, from crisp white to delicious biscuit, feisty animal print and candy pink.
For a fresh look, simply wear your shirt dress of choice with a pair of pumps. If there’s a chill in the air, copy the street-style set and layer it over a pair of trousers or jeans, or pop a fine knit polo neck underneath.
