I struggle finding long shirts to wear over my work trousers, and I often have to resort to wearing a shirt thats a size or too big which results in me spending an unnecessary part of my day struggling with sleeves that are too long for my short dinosaur arms! So I'm super excited for this next trend, as it means it will make it easier for me to find work attire over the next few months.. behold the shirt dress.. a simple enough concept, and now conveniently available in most high street stores! Yaaay!
Although shirt dresses are intended to be work as just a dress, the structure of the garment coupled with the collar and smart sleeves means you can throw it on top of a pair of trousers or jeans for a casual day and you still have a modest(ish depending on where you stand) look.

Dorothy Perkins has a variety of shirt dresses in stock at the moment, as do most of the other stores. My advice? Stock up on some neutral coloured shirt-dresses that you can wear to work in the latter part of this year and you wont struggle with finding convenient work attire when this trend goes out of trend!
