We all need those easy outfits that require little to no thought– minimal prep for maximum appearance. When schedules are hectic, the weekend rolls around, or even if you’re just not in the mood for loads of outfit prep, it’s essential to have an outfit on hand thats easy, effortless, and sure to pull you through.

Insert… The Shirt Dress.

Styled with a simple mule loafer, a classic leather backpack, and a spritz of dry shampoo it requires absolutely no maintenance. My favorite— this beautiful blue with embroidered floral detailing, reminiscent of Gucci’s signature blooms. Of course the off the shoulder touch offers a nod to this year’s biggest trend, but there’s plenty of styles suitable for more timeless looks too! The dress that I’m wearing also comes in an embroidered collar style for a look that’s a little more structured and transitional. If you’re a fan of embroidery  this black, sleek cold shoulder style  is another reliable shirt dress too. For something effortless, mono chrome, and traditional opt for solid black, ruffled and white, clean cotton blue, or chambray dark denim.

I’ve linked the exact look I’m wearing and added a few other favorites, ideal for maximizing the shirt dress this season!
