Fashion forecast - Shirtdresses

One of the quickest ways to get work ready and still look polished is the shirtdress and it is making its comeback with colorful graphics and details. Borrowing touches from a man's shirt like a collar, button front or cuffed sleeves, this style from the boys is still 100% girl. Because of its looser fit with waist definition, the shirtdress is flattering on most bodies.

Urban Outfitters Penguin Pill Bottle Shirtdress $198; Bette vintage inspired shirtdress $148 at J. Crew

Lux Picnic shirtdress $58 (Love the detailing!) from Urban Outfitters

Just Cavalli belted shirtdress $750 from Neiman Marcus; Semantiks sateen shirtdress $98 at Nordstrom

I was immediately drawn to this J. Crew San Remo dress when I first saw it but I am not sure how flattering it would be because the print is so busy. Apparently other women were drawn to it as well because they are currently sold out of the dress but you can call 800 562-0258 and they will notify you when the dress will become available.

Delia's Nancy dress $39.50 and Tracy Reese Crimson Sweet shirtdress $440

I love the back of this St. Martin's 40's inspired emboidered shirtdress from asos ($75.08.) I would change the belt that comes with the dress to a wide leather belt, pop the collar and keep the yellow shoes that the model is wearing in the pic. Fabulous!
