RIVER ISLAND SATCHEL(SIMILAR)
WITTNER BOOTS (SIMILAR HERE)
While I’ve always loved the idea of a shirtdress I struggled to find just the right cut that would suit my pear shaped body. Stretched fabric over the hips and strained button holes are never a good look!
Then I came across this oversized number via Boohoo (on sale for $34) and the flap over the buttons caught my eye- no more gaps in awkward places! So it got me thinking: what else makes up the perfect shirtdress? This is what I found works for me:
* The aformentioned button-strain can be negated with a slightly thicker material such as soft denim or woven linen.
* If gaps are still an issue opt for styles with buttons that stop at the waist.
* Go for oversized. Loose with cuffed sleeves or belted and hitched up are both options with oversized.
