Even before becoming a mom, I always kept a great selection of go-to dresses in my closet because I could simply pick out one piece of clothing and accessorize it. It cut down my “getting ready” time without sacrificing style, and allowed me to sleep in a little longer before heading to work. Remember what sleeping in feels like, ladies? Yeah, me neither.
Now with kids, dresses are mandatory if I want to get out of the house on time for anything at any time of the day.
Well, I have two words for you… SHIRT. DRESS.
The shirtdress is quite possibly the best mom-friendly fashion to come along since wearing yoga pants in public became a thing. It’s now a staple in my “go-to” collection and the best part about it is that it comes in SO many cuts, styles and prints. It’s like buying your favorite blouse in every color… only now it’s your favorite shirtdress in every style!
I absolutely love this look because it’s functional, comfortable AND affordable (especially if you use your Tanger coupon book and watch for deals). You need this amazing trend in your life. Trust me on this.
Check out how many ways you can wear this look!
PLAIN AND SIMPLE
The style is meant to be casual and relaxed so for everyday errands, family outings, playdates or less formal get-togethers just let it hang loose. Or, if you want to show off your hard earned mommy curves, simply belt it with a cute sash or fun belt.
PRINTS AND PATTERNS
A little vintage. A little modern. A little more fitted. A little more flare. It’s the perfect look for coffee dates with the girls, book club meetings, brunch or even the workplace (for all you working moms).
This look also makes packing for vacation super easy. I think I have four tucked away for our little end-of-summer family getaway in a few weeks. Less baggage fees mean more room in your suitcase and more money to shop with on vacation. Just saying!
These dresses also work great with skinny jeans or leggings to create an awesome layered look for cooler weather. Just throw on a light jacket, cardigan or scarf and you’re set.
I LOVE the denim jacket and sneakers combo! It will definitely be my style of choice this fall.
So, are you a believer in the shirtdress yet?
