“ Brand: Select / Type: Designer Wear / Gender: Female „
I have wanted a shirt dress for as long as I can remember - longer than they have been in fashion anyway but I'm starting to think I'm a bit too picky as I couldn't find one I liked anywhere. Until a few weeks ago that is when I noticed this "Short Sleeve Rouche Frontshirt" in Select and even though it was nothing like the style I was looking for I bought it straight away simply because I knew I wouldn't find anything as good again - to suit me anyway. I was actually looking for something looser when I was searching for this dress and the only one's I could find in that style were in Primark but they were so loose they looked like PJ's so this is what I settled for in the end and I'm very glad I did because Ive been wearing it loads since.
Black buttoned shirt dress comes with small high waisted black belt - designed for casual wear.
This isn't your average shirt dress because as I mentioned it is much tighter than the normal style. Don't worry though it is supposed to be fitted and also don't worry about it popping open unexpectedly so far the buttons have been very sturdy and no accidents have occurred. I'm usually a size 8-10 in dresses and I fit into a size 8 in this dress so definitely try before you buy - you might end up getting a smaller size than you expected.
When I bought this I had a feeling that because of this slightly puffy shoulders this was going to make me look far to girly and young but in fact it is the total opposite. Even though I would have preferred longer sleeves I do like them the way they are and because the shirt is fitted pretty much everyone has told me it looks like a nurses outfit - girly and demure it ain't! However it doesn't look super dressy or tarty either and is what Id say smart casual for when you cant be bothered but still want people to think you've made a big effort.
The belt can be removed from the dress and others can be attached but I like the one it comes with - which for me is very rare. I think the belt helps the dress gives you the illusion of proper curves and I do feel great when I wear this dress as it does help you make the most of your figure - even if your not naturally curvy - I just go out all over ha ha! I tend to wear this with leggings or very dark black tights mostly - if they aren't super dark your bum will be on show (learn from my mistakes!) but this can be worn with ordinary trousers or jeans should you want to cover up a bit more so I guess you could say its versatile.
I definitely recommend this to most women as I think it will suit all ages and all tastes as it is very simple yet brilliant and can be worn so many ways with loads of different looks. Ive got loads of wear out of mine so I think its definitely worth the price and I recommend it to others! Thanks for reading.
