Is it a shirt? Is it a short-dress? No, it’s an outré modish shirt-dress with unique prints that can be styled in 5 lively colours!

The shirt-dress was known as the shirtwaist dress when it was first introduced in the American ready-to-wear industry in the 1890s and it quickly became the epitome of American lifestyle.

Here are 5 ways to style your shirt dress according to a bold colour palette and your mood, of course. 

1/5 Green With Envy

To pinpoint which era that the Mulberry circular red earrings are inspired by is rather difficult as it could land just about any timeline. Be it the romantic ancient Rome or the sexy and raging Sixties, all we know is that the jewellery would be paired well with the Roger Vivier tartan bag.  Piece de resistance!

Embrace the dark side with these gothic accessories from the Dior’s Ultra Black handbag down to the mythical Versace timepiece with the Medusa’s head. Tuck in the shirt-dress in a pair of Alexander McQueen’s lacy trousers for a covert look.
