- Minimalist chic – the minimalist look is the best look to go for if you want something simple and subtle yet stylish. It’s an understated statement you can make that’s sure to turn heads and make all the other fashionistas drool. To get the look, go for a neutral colored shirt dress with a simple silhouette and pair it up with no-frill accessories like a belt, a purse and shoes.

- Girly retro – shirt dresses were very popular even back in the day and if you’re looking to channel some of that Old World Glam into your look, I would suggest going for a button up shirt dress that features a collared neck and an A-line silhouette. It would help bring more of the retro look, too, if you could get your hands on one with cute pattern printed all over.Think Taylor Swift and Jessica Day (Zooey Deschanel’s character in the TV series “New Girl”) kind of shirt dresses. Aside from giving you that cool and girly retro-ish kind of vibe, it tends to make your figure look better, too, thanks to the A-line silhouette.
- Boho beauty – if you’re all about comfort, the Boho style is for you. This look can be achieved wearing a shirt dress by going for a piece that’s got the easy and relaxed vibe which is what Boho is all about. Go for looser fitting shirt dresses and pick out the ones with chic, subtle details like ruffles, lace / eyelet crochet panels and embroidery. Don’t be afraid to wear it as a long top, too, and wear flared jeans or leggings with it.
- Cute and casual – for a quick lunch date or some catching-up-over-coffee session with your friends, go for a nice and cute casual look. Plain shirt dresses are fine but you can add more fun to the look by opting for printed ones, too. Finish off with a pair of low-key white sneakers or flats (or maybe even boots for fall and winter) for that perfect off-duty look.
