Today’s Coveted Working Look: Banana Republic Navy Shirt Dress

by Anne Dreshfield | April 14th, 2014   

There are few things as classic as a navy shirt dress, except maybe the beloved trench coat or little black dress. While I love a flashier dress for special occasions, shirt dresses are equivalent to a bowl of your favorite soup: comforting, simple, and just darn good.

Banana Republic’s iteration is lovely for the office. First of all, the sleeve length is just right – long enough to cover for a more conservative office, but still flattering on the arm. The thoughtful neckline is beautiful while still retaining the classic button-down look of shirt dresses, and the lightly-cinched waist is flattering on a variety of body types.

So easy, classic, and chic, right? I could see the Banana Republic Navy Shirtdress becoming a new casual Friday favorite for my office. Simply pair with high-heeled boots (and maybe a pair of tights) for the fall and colder spring months, and swap for dressy sandals in the warmer months (I happen to love the sandals they’ve styled the dress with here – fantastic pop of color!).

Have you ever worn a shirt dress to the office?
