Whenever I look for new clothes, it’s most important to me that I’m able to wear them to work. I’ve been able to build a pretty versatile closet that contains casual work clothing that I can also wear outside of work. It’s always been easier finding tops and pants than dresses. I find it difficult to find a dress that’s simple enough I don’t feel overdressed while also being the right length.
Shirt dresses I find to be the perfect silhouette that fits this criteria. They’re feminine and classic while also being no fuss and easy to wear.
This black shirt dress from Marcellamoda’s fall line is everything I would want in a shirt dress for work. The design is focused on simplicity and versatility. I also love the basis behind their fall collection. This idea of duality. Of women being able to exist between two opposites. Feminine and masculine or bold and delicate.
This dress captures each and is exactly what I look for in a everyday work dress that I couldn’t quite put words into what I was looking for until learning about the concept behind this collection.
As for fit, I’m wearing an XS which is still a little loose. The length is also a bit long. I’m 5’6″ for reference so you might want to have it hemmed unless you prefer the longer length. Up to you!
So, if you’ve been looking for a work dress or even just a beautiful shirt dress, this one is perfect. You can also take 10% off your order with the code Mary10.
