The Casual Shirt Dress | A Spring Style Edit

The weather in the UK recently has done a great job of confirming that it is, in fact, spring. The sun has been out quite consistently and whilst some days are colder than others, I’ve definitely been reaching for fewer layers. The casual shirt dress is a style I love to wear throughout spring: it’s versatile and looks put together without requiring much effort at all. Recently, ELVI kindly allowed me to choose two items from their spring collection and these are my picks:

ELINE Shirt Dress With Tassle | £45

It’s spring and yes, I’m still (sometimes) in black. Although the sun has graced us most days, the breeze can still carry quite a chill throughout spring. On colder days I’ve paired this with thicker, black tights but it looks great with skin coloured tights, or none at all if your blood is a little warmer than mine. The tie-up waist detail is super flattering and the tassle which adorns it is detachable so it can be worn two ways.

Denim is such an effortless look. This dress gives off spring vibes but the long sleeves and relatively thick fabric account for the breeze. Although this one is a little less versatile in the colder weather, the sleeves don’t look out of place rolled up, so it will carry through to a summer wardrobe nicely. So far I’ve only worn it around town, but I think it’s the perfect piece for evening strolls along the beach, when it becomes warm enough that is!


Each of these dresses are perfect ‘grab and go’ wardrobe staples. They require very minimum effort, look good and work with so many different shoe options too. For 20% off the ELVI website, use code ‘SOPH20’ at checkout.

    I love the weather out in the UK! Your outfit is gorgeous. I like the vibes of the shirt dress. I should definitely look into this – so much easier than dealing with a top and skirt. Glad you loved the dresses! Thanks for sharing the outfit inspo.

    You look lovely! A shirt-dress is a lazy girl’s best friend, in my opinion – it is so easy to style and carry off. Great post!
