Cubicle to Cocktails: Button Up That Shirtdress

Hi all!

Today's edition of Cubicle to Cocktails features the iconic shirtdress. Shirtdresses can be tricky sometimes - they are deceivingly "easy" to wear, just throw it on and button up. However, the hem, the fit, the color, the sleeve, etc. can all make or break the look of this sweet little number.

I'm a big fan of this Micheal by Michael Kors printed shirtdress, it's 100% silk and super versatile (albeit a bit casual for some of your work environments). By pairing it with a fancy pants belt and some standard nude slingbacks, the dress becomes more office appropriate - just watch the length! As for cocktail attire, unbutton a button and sport some chunkier jewelry and supa tall wedges. You could also skip the belt completely, throw on some comfy flats and hit a party on the beach in a snap. Can we say, fourth of July?!

So, friends - are we fans or foes of the shirtdress?
