ALL IN THE DETAILS: The Plaid Rock ‘n' Roll Shirt Dress

Spring is finally here and with it comes the florals, pastels and classic maxi dresses! I love these outfits (especially after such a long winter), but it may be a hard transition for those who love the edgy layers and monochromatic looks of winter. For some, it’s bittersweet to shed the easy chicness of a heavy coat and all the warm accessories of winter in exchange for the better spring weather. So, what may be the perfect way to edge up a new spring look? A red plaid shirt dress.

I am obsessed with this Fashionista’s shirt dress. The tapered length and deep red plaid are what caught my eye when I saw her. I loved the way her black jacket, lined with white faux fur and with a popped collar, paired with her casual shirt dress. She accessorized the look with some translucent pink sunglasses, a red Longchamp tote and a pair of buckled, black ankle boots. Her tousled hair makes the look feel even more rock ‘n’ roll casual.

The long shirt dress retains the cool, easy layers of winter while also possessing the lightness of a spring maxi dress. Its a versatile statement piece that easily pairs with most jackets, cardigans or vests. This may be the perfect piece for anyone who wants to wear something a little different from the classic spring look!

How To: Want to rock a plaid maxi shirt dress, but worried about the fit? Cinch in the waist area with a black fitted jacket to emphasize your figure. If length is your issue, opt for an outfit with an asymmetrical hem, like a high-low dress, to emphasize your legs.
