The shirtdress. It's been around forever and really never goes out of style. I love how versatile and multifaceted it is. Am I giving it too much credit? Not really. I can think of no other dress that can be ladylike, casual, fun, elegant, cute, worn to work, to outdoor concerts, on a boat, to tea, on a picnic, and the list goes on. You might not sport the same garment to all of these places, but you can wear a shirtdress practically anywhere. Here are a few of my favorites. I like a defined waist but I'm also loving the softness of a dress that glides on. Add sandals and go.
