White Shirtdress

 


Elegance in White

"The joy of dressing is an art." - John Galliano


White is timeless in a well-designed shirtdress.  A white shirtdress signals spring and summer are around the corner. Wear this modest number throughout the warmer months. The effect is classic and memorable signifying elegance.   

Today there is emphasis on quality apparel and minimalism in accessories.  The day of large and flashy logos are "out" and (frankly always have been), and instead there is a nod to quiet luxury.  Refined fashion leaders are following this fashion memo. The result is to notice the entire person and not the garish apparel piece or flashy accessory.  After all, old money fashion has always spoken volumes worldwide. 

Why So Naked? 

One burning question? "Why are women in media wearing skimpy outfits baring all?  This movement reeks of a desperation for attention.  In comparison, Audrey Hepburn, Princess Catherine, Angelina Jolie dress with style.  It is a tragic commentary on the state of society when parading naked has become a vibe.  How dull and boorish.  A lack of mystery, character and depth are missing. 

Well, I digressed.   Back to the beauty of a simple white shirtdress.  The look is refreshing and perfect for sun filled months.  The thought of warm and luxurious heat beating against our skin is exhilarating.  Pair with brown or black sandals, a matching belt and matching handbag.  You will have heads turning and everyone wanting to copy your minimal yet refined look.

The Classic





Spring and summer are almost here.  We are all looking for a breather from the cold, wind, show, hail, and rain.  In fact, more rain is on its way in the Pacific Northwest after a brief respite of sunshine.  Thus, we have a moment to prepare for the glorious summer solstice.  Get ready, get set and enjoy the beauty of the months ahead.  While you are at it, consider the white shirtdress.  You will love it.
