The shirt dress is trending across the women’s (and, excitingly, a few men’s) collections of Spring/Summer 2021, as well as on the street. As a dresser, the piece is quick and easy, and gives one lots of options. Designers are embracing this diversity, cutting it high, low, and everywhere in between, and experimenting with its almost limitless construction and styling possibilities.
Ports 1961 gets gladiatorial, taking the shirt dress in a tunic-like direction. Loewe and Dries Van Noten explore its gender-fluid possibilities. Accidental Cutting opens up its shoulders for a brilliant combination of classy and sexy. Anrealge and Calcaterra go for maximum voluminosity. R13 perfects that steal-your-boyfriend’s-shirt look. Rick Owens characteristically imagines how the deep space colony elites might wear it. Phoebe English keeps it elegantly simple.
On the street, we’re seeing women recognize the shirt dress’s breezy combination of sophistication and cool. The perfect shirt dress, the right shoes, a bag, and you’re ready for wherever the day may take you.
