|PANELLED SHIRTDRESS WITH CONRAST COLLAR AND BELT|
Shirt-dress: a style of dress that borrows details from a man's shirt. These can include a collar, a button front, or cuffed sleeves.
|STRIPED CDC SHORT SLEEVE SHIRTDRESS|
The shirt-dress is a trend which appeared in the 1950's, made fashionable by Christian Dior's post world-war two. The shirt-dress continued to be produced by countless fashion houses and is worn until today by many women for different types of occasions. Due to the nature of the shirt-dress, it is possible to wear the garment during day, as well as evenings.
Tome, a women's wear line made in NYC and an alumni of the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund, has redefined the shirt-dress by mixing different cuts, patterns and styling. The brand has simplified the shirt-dress even further, focusing solely on the construction process which makes it appear super sleek and with a clean finish.
The three looks shown on this blog post are chosen by myself, because I immediately fell in love with the colors used for the garments, as well as the over-all styling. The shirt-dress is comfortable, and is therefore ideal for a day-time look. Additionally, Tome's shirt-dresses appear to be very simplified yet sophisticated, which will give you the ability to run your errands fashionably.
