There is something about shirt dresses that I am always drawn to. Long sleeves. Short sleeves. Silk. Cotton. If I see one in a store, I’m more than likely trying it on. When I spotted this layered buttoned shirt dress at Forever 21 a few weeks ago for under $23, my tune was no different. The cuffed short sleeves and layering detail was such a nice touch that I almost couldn’t believe it was from Forever 21. Is it just me or are they really stepping up their fashion? I swear I am constantly coming across pieces in their contemporary section that look far more expensive than their twenty-something price tag. The only negative part of this shirt dress is that it is unlined so I highly recommend wearing a slip of some sort underneath if you’re going to wear it as a dress. I think it could easily be worn as a tunic with a pair of skinny jeans and as it gets colder you can pair it with leggings and a blazer. With as much versatility as this piece has, I think it is definitely worth its price tag.
I always love pairing button up shirts and dresses with a statement necklace tucked under the collar and keeping the rest of the look very simple. My main accessory in this look is my colorful box of macarons courtesy of Macaron Cafe in New York! They have over 50 flavors to choose from that change seasonally and the good news is they ship nationwide! If you want a piece of New York (and France) delivered to your doorstep, visit them at www.macaroncafe.com!
