3 New Ways To Wear The Classic Shirtdress

At this point, many of us already own a classic shirtdress. With its crisp fabric, button down style and loose hem, this casual frock is typically made of denim, cotton or linen, and sported on a fashionista’s days off. However, the shirtdress is back in a bigger and better way for Summer 2018, with the fashion gurus of Instagram adopting this trend in various ways. From punchy accessories to chic and edgy silhouettes, here are a few examples of how to rock this look right now.
