Style Sunday: The Shirt Dress

I love when a classic garment gets a bit of a shake up with a funky print – and that is exactly what is going on with this beautiful arrow print shirt dress  £39.95 from Gap

This has to be one of my all time favourite wardrobe staples – wear with it tights and boots for a quick autumn look, or team with jeans for a dress down casual. What could be better?

I’ll tell you what! Adding in a fun print to your shirt dress, now that’s more like it! yes these arrows are super cute, but they got me thinking about all the amazing print cottons, and the classic shirt dress is just the thing for working up in a quirky and stylish print. Here are just a few of my favourites that will rock the basic shirt dress!
