Forgetting your pants at home has never looked so good thanks to oversized shirtdresses! Perhaps one of, if not, my favorite garb stemming from the very popular menswear inspired trend, oversized shirtdresses are comfy, nonchalantly sexy and quite controversial lol!
On both occasions that I’ve worn this shirtdress (here and below), I have to admit, I’ve received some puzzled looks and comments such as “where are your pants?” and “hey did you forget your pants at home?”. Silly questions considering this shirtdress has pockets! Duh! Clearly a dress.
Speaking of pockets, let’s talk about the comfort of a shirtdress. I love any dress with pockets, pockets are very comforting and convenient. Wearing a shirtdress is pretty much like wearing PJ’s and getting away with it. It says “I woke up like this…and put on my boyfriend’s dress shirt”.
Which brings me to the nonchalantly sexy aspect. I mean there’s nothing truly flattering or feminine about an oversized shirtdress, it’s closest relative is a potato sack! But “sexy” is not always about what you immediately provide to the eye. Sexy can very often be an implied thought, a hint to the imagination. The thought of a woman waking up next to her man, slipping on nothing but his dress shirt (from last night) and stepping out into world as such, is pretty sexy. At least I think so.
What do you think?
