I’m thinking about adding a vintage shirt dress to my wardrobe, in a pretty floral print.
My cousin has vintage shirt dress collection as part of her interest in all things rockabilly and swing, and I’ve always loved the style. It’s not something I’ve got in my wardrobe though, mainly because #mumlife.
However, I have a few functions coming up and the thought of a nice dress to wear to these functions popped into my head. The shirt dress style is really versatile – pair with ballerina flats or ankle boots for day, change into heels for a night out. Gotta love multitasking dresses!
I also love a pretty floral print but my preference is usually a floral print on a dark background. With the dress and this floral print in mind I then started thinking about a shirt dress in a vintage style with a floral print. (Specific much?)
Below are some of my favourite picks for a floral print vintage shirt dress:
Alexia Admor Sleeveless Floral Shirt Dress ($92) – Nordstrom Rack
Floral Print Twisted Panel Shirt Dress by MSGM ($350) – Matches Fashion
I could even see myself wearing some of these dresses with a pair of crisp white sneakers – even though they’re printed, the dark background makes them work well with a lot of footwear choices.
Given my preference for jeans and a tee/sweatshirt for most days, it would be nice to wear something different to change up the mum uniform – I know my 4 year old would approve of any of the above dresses!
