Greetings, my friends! Today I am sharing one of my favorite dresses: the shirtdress. I’m a sucker for a shirtdress. I have always loved this style, probably because it flatters my straight figure. I can remember wearing this style in high school! And certainly to work throughout my working career. It is a look that always feels polished and right. And I absolutely love this red striped shirtdress. Yes, it is another find from Target so it’s truly a steal.
Do you have a favorite style or fit that works for you?
The red striped shirtdress outfit with jeans
The beauty of the shirtdress is that it can be styled a couple of different ways. Unbuttoned, it can serve as a duster, so you can wear it over your favorite skinny jeans, leggings or fitted slacks.
For this look, I added my block-heeled sandals and my distressed white jeans. The Obi-style wrap belt is one of the touches that make the dress both cute and flattering.
And I could NOT resist these adorable red tassel earrings! I have styled these before so you can tell I really like them! lol! You can see them here in another post. With a statement earring like this, I don’t think any other jewelry was needed.

For the second look, you can see just the shirtdress, which is a great look all by itself! You can see how the Obi belt helps give definition to your waistline–a detail that works for me! You could also tie the front into a bow, with is more traditional but I prefer the simple knot–trying to avoid too much bulk in the front!
And with the simplicity of the dress, a ruffled mule in bright red added a bit more fun.
The same red tasseled earrings finished this simple look.
This dress is another example of how affordable fashion pieces can really help round out your wardrobe. If you haven’t checked out some of the cute lines at Target, check them out.
