The shirt dress.

Hardly an exciting sartorial proposition. The stalwart of shops like Next, they're usually loose fit, invariably in khaki and tied at the waist. You know the kind. The sort of garment that sucks the life out of everyone who wears it, whether they realise it or not. She gave up on life so she bought a shirt dress.

It doesn't have to be that way though. Shirt dresses really don't have to be dull. Ditch the khaki and get on board with a strict uniform-esque cut and schoolgirl colour. Harden it up with S&M details, like tight PVC and a leather harness. Rules to live by, not just when it comes to styling a shirt dress.
