The Shirt Dress
One garment I was glad to see designers using in their spring collections was the shirt dress. The shirt dress is such a lovely, classic garment. It manages to be feminine without being girly; its clean lines making it easy to dress up or down. And it's so easy to update according to trends.

This lovely little shirt dress is kept current with it's wacky print (kittens playing). Offbeat prints were a trend among spring 2011 RTW shows. The print takes center stage in this look with barely-there sandals, a skinny belt, and a complimentary bag. Bravo!
Another trend seen again and again this spring was bold color. Here again, the color is the focal point of the outfit with minimal accessories, strappy sandals, and a complimentary bag. Too cute!
The print in this Christian Dior shirt dress highlights another spring 2011 trend: interesting color pairings. The purple and lime green in this print go nicely together, although they aren't two colors you'd typically think to put together in an outfit. Paired with some seriously oversized accents, this dress another fantastic update on a classic look.
The spring lines weren't all about wild prints and crazy colors. The shirt dress gets a simpler update from Ralph Lauren in vivid white fabric with western accents. The result is clean and classic with a trendy twist. Just wonderful!
As always, don't forget to shop!
