Modern & Structured
For a shirt-dress that’s as smart as it is chic, look for a collar and a waist-cinching tie. Unexpected stitching, zips and ties will add shape to enhance hourglass shapes. When it comes to accessorising, practicality is key–wardrobe staples like a block heel and a neutral tote pair perfectly with snakeskin and gold accents.
