Flashback fashion: shirtdresses
The sophisticated yet comfortable shirtdress style is back and here to stay. The shirtdress trend was popular among housewives in the 1950s, but it's coming back for everyone to wear.
The shirtdress (or shirtwaist dresses) combined a men's shirt with a skirt. The shirtdress often had collars, buttons and cuffs like men's shirts. The shirtdresses became popular in the 1950s after Christian Dior's "New Look" designs.
Shirtdresses are coming back into modern fashion. Wearing a shirtdress is a great way to look sophisticated with lots of comfort. You can pair a shirtdress with a variety of accessories to change up the vibe of the dress.
Here is some styling inspiration for how to wear a shirtdress. A good way to make sure you don't look like you are wearing just a guy's shirt is to add a belt to accentuate your waist.

I just realized I have one of these. Wore it for church on Saturday. I love it-simple and convenient (cause it has a pocket)
