Cotton flannel dress with a voluminous design
A shirt dress is one of those pieces that’s such a great investment because you get so many looks out of one basic staple. The most important thing when buying a shirt dress is to look for the right fit. There’s nothing worse than an ill-fitting shirt dress.
Also, it’s very important to look for a shirt dress that matches your body shape, like this one.
When styled right, the shirt dress looks very chic and cool.
It’s a classic of practicality, delivering the warmth you want without over-heating. The fabric is right-weight: not too heavy, but hefty. Then it’s brushed to bring out incredible softness.
Considering that flannels are one of the best things about cold weather fashion, you definitely don’t want to miss out on them.
Flannel resurged with a vengeance the early’90s as part of the grunge music scene. The shirts that had united America’s working class in the 1950s became a symbol of the anti-conformity zeitgeist. Today, plaid flannel has also transitioned to high fashion. It was picked up by big-named brands and crossed the gender divide, finding use in womenwear.
Both a sturdy staple and an ever-reborn product of cyclical fashion, flannel has grown from humble Welsh beginnings to clothe the builders of the railroads and inspire folklore, symbolized the American business work ethic and that idea’s angry cultural and musical counterpoint.
Say what you will about its inferiority to new-fangled lab-created materials — it’ll be around longer than you will.
A unique piece for your wardrobe.
