Button up - it's time to meet your wardrobe hero, says Annmarie O'Connor.
Spotted on the Dolce & Gabbana runway and coveted by savvy stylistas, the shirt dress is having a moment and with good reason.
A closet classic with flexible appeal – its ability to segue across seasons and occasions with ease makes it a de facto must-have. Wear it as a shirt; wear it as a dress;
wear it as an overshirt and wear it well into winter.
It almost sounds too good to be true!
