A white shirt dress is such a striking piece that you can easily make it shine with nothing but a single accessory – for example, a small designer bag, some jewelry, or a pair of trendy footwear.

If you don’t feel like showing off your legs, you can use your shirt dress as a tunic and pair it with your favourite pair of trousers. Finish off the look with killer heels and a cute little handbag.

Most white shirt dresses you’ll see today have their waist cinched with a belt or a set of strings, but a loose-fitting shirt dress is equally trendy and can be much more comfortable to wear all day long.

A white shirt dress outfit can get pretty monochrome, but you can always add a pop of colour to your look with the right accessories. This pink tie and a matching clutch bag will certainly create a memorable outfit!

With the right styling, makeup, and hair, a white shirt dress can be an ideal choice for the office. With this corporate outfit, you will feel both fashionable and professional, which is a rare combination with most office dress-codes.
