Today’s Coveted Working Look: Banana Republic Tie-Waist Shirtdress

by Anne Dreshfield | September 3rd, 2014   

It’s no secret that I love a good shirtdress – they offer complete ease, sophistication, and just enough fashion know-how to your average workday look. Plus, they’re everything you need in an outfit: sharp tailoring, chic details, and it’s dressy enough for your average Tuesday. Pop on a pair of heels for the office, and you’re good to go!

I’m a little bit obsessed with Banana Republic’s Tie-Waist Shirtdress, which is a twist on the shirtdress for fall and has me pining for hot pumpkin spice lattes and fall’s crisp, clean air.

I love the deep wine of this Banana Republic Tie-Waist Shirtdress, which is perfectly on-point for fall. The detailing in the image above is gorgeous, with matching suede heels. The clutch is perfect for heading out for drinks after work, but for the office, I’d grab a leather and suede top-handle bag or a gorgeous leather tote to fit your work essentials. Toss the clutch in so you can grab-and-go at the end of the workday!

If you’re an adventurous soul, try pairing this chic dress with ankle boots and socks, like on the model above. Be brave! With Banana Republic’s Tie-Waist Shirtdress, you’ve basically got a blank slate. If you’re not quite that adventurous, try pairing the dress with knee-high boots for fall (flat brown boots for a more equestrian look, heeled black boots for a dressier option), or sharp heels for a night out. I love both models’ loose waves in the images above for a laid back, chic look.
