The Dress Style We're Falling For All Over Again

Sometimes, it's all in the details. While there are a multitude of dress trends we're coveting for next season, we're finding ourselves re-falling for a simple style that's far from new: the belted shirtdress. With a built-in method for creating the illusion of a cinched waist and a timeless, vintage-inspired silhouette, the combination has proven itself to be a universally flattering — and stylistically appealing — fit.

But belted shirtdresses have come a long way from the poplin standard of their past. Now, there are bold color options, plunging necklines, mini skirt and bell sleeve duos, and midi-length styles in silk from head to toe. Basically, it's 2018's emerging "throw on and go" winner that we'll be reaching for through the warmer months. So suss out the options ahead, top off your look with a pair of our choice spring shoe, and revel in the warmer days to come.
