I’m sure you’ve noticed that the days are getting longer, which means spring is not far away. Most of us are ready for sunny spring days to arrive after a long, cold winter. If warm weather has not yet graced your part of the country - at least you can daydream. Think above the knee short sleeve shirtdresses for spring and summer. I am particularly loving Jason Wu’s pink silk belted shirtdress. Just toss it on a shirt dress make dress, wrap a belt around your waist (or not!) and slip on some strappy criss-cross wedge sandals. Et voila, you are ready to welcome spring!
A youthful flouncy look can be yours with this Free People Striped Shirtdress (top left, $108 at Shopbop.com). Button up the 6-button closure and you’ll be all tied up with a canvas waist tie and cute cuffed elbow-length sleeves. Perfect for a Sunday brunch or weekday office wear, the Ann Taylor Loft Petite Tie Neck Shirtdress (top middle, $79.50 at Ann Taylor Loft) is made of cotton with a touch of sheen. You’ll be pretty in ‘hot’ pink in this shirtdress adorned with a ruffle tie collar and smocking at sleeves. For an edgier, downtown take on the shirt dress is Rogan’s Innes shirtdress (top right, $288.00 at Shopbop), made of twill and buttoned up with a slouchy loose fitting silhouette, self-belt and shirttail hem. Jason Wu’s Silk Shirtdress (bottom left, $995 at Neiman Marcus) is a luxe version of the classic ’50s inspired belted shirtdress is re-interpreted by Wu into a decadent pink multi-color abstract print. Gorgeous waves of silk adorn this notched collar and button front belted dress featuring an A-line skirt.
Step into a pair of criss cross wedge sandals to accessorize your springtime shirtdress. My faves include wood-soled Belle by Sigerson Morrison Crisscross Wedge Sandals (top, $240 at Saks.com). Love the contrast of pebbled leather, wood and stud detailing. You’ll be wearing these all through the summer! From Diane von Furstenberg is the Opal Wedge Platform Sandal (bottom, $295 at Saks). A streamlined modernist take on the wedge sandal, definitely a statement shoe with a sculpted wooden wedge and back zip closure.
