A shirt-dress – the masculine spice of femininity

Frankly, there are many items in my husband’s closet I’d love to adopt. There’s nothing sexier and more feminine than a man’s button-up casually thrown on a woman’s body. However, this is a look for movies and bedrooms – walk around like this, and you’ll get the wrong type of looks. Accessorizing a masculine shirt properly is an art form – jeans, a short skirt and shorts are all valid options.

To skip all the styling dilemmas, the shirt-dress is a genius solution – part button-up shirt, part skirt, all classic pinstripes – a perfect combo of masculinity and femininity, in one fashionable look.

If you’re in a romantic mood, like I was during my visit to Prague, go for gentle retro-inspired heels, like the shoe in the photo – the elegant result works itself nicely into a vintage car ride.

If you’re feeling sporty, opt for sneakers for longer city walks and comfort. As for the color palette, I decided to go baby blue, but this dress will work great with brown – a rugged leather bag and sunglasses, plus white sneakers.
