Three Autumn-Approved Way to Wear a shirtdress

The shirtdress in all it’s airy yet polished androgynous glory is a mainstay of the modest wardrobe. Orthodox Jewish designers The Frock NYCMiMu Maxi and Project 6 have catered to community, re-tjuz’ing the creation with conservatism through lengthy, contemporary cuts – a trend further revived on recent runways. (Think Adeam, and Loewe, and Céline! Oh my!)

The allure of this structured sheath? In addition to versatile wearability and seemingly one-size-fits-all comfort, the crisp shirtdress is largely a sartorial tabula rasa, classic in conception and ripe for personalized, here-and-now interpretation. 

Having emerged the quintessential work-to-weekend summer uniform, this wardrobe savior transcends dress code, zip code and timezone proving increasingly apropos, plus she’s along for the multi-seasonal ride. These days we are enthusiastically borrowing from boys year round. So with chillier temperatures on the horizon, ’tis time you autumize the collared hero and keep it in rotation. Below, three fall 2016-inspired looks spotlighting the shirtdress.
