You don't exactly squeal with joy at the thought of a shirtdress. You likely haven't been saving up to splurge on a fancy one and, if you own a shirtdress already, you might even be considering packing it up for the winter. But, slow down. The oft-overlooked piece is not only an absolute staple for fall and winter (paired with thick tights and high boots), but it can be more exciting than you'd think. We put together three out-of-the-box outfits to breathe new life into your extra-long tops. There's some creative layering you can pull off at the office, a look for a cocktail party, and even a formal version for a fancy a night out. On second thought, there's no reason not to squeal.
