Shirt dresses have always been a favorite of mine. Y’all know I love me some classics, right?! And as far as nursing-friendly dresses go, they are one of the best options out there! In fact my chambray shirt dress was a go-to after Layla was born. But this black denim shirt dress may be one of my favorites ever.
When it comes to shirt dresses or really any button-front piece, the struggle is all about gaping right? It can be difficult to find the perfect fit without pulling between buttons! And that’s one of the reasons this black denim shirt dress is a winner! The fit is a bit relaxed, but it also has a tie belt to accentuate the waistline. It also only has buttons on the top half, making it so much more wearable! I hate feeling like the bottom buttons might come undone, and there is no issue with this style! Lastly, although it does have a u-style hemline, the sides are significantly shorter. I’m 5’7″, and it doesn’t feel too short!
I also love the color. Yes, I am all about a classic blue denim, but the black feels fresh! Even though it still is a denim material, the color also makes it more versatile! You can of course wear it casually like I’ve done here, but it could also be dressed up! If I still worked in an office setting, this dress would definitely be a part of my work wardrobe! With pumps and statement necklace or earrings, it would instantly appear dressier! It could also be layered with a tailored cardigan!
When I recently wore it to church, I decided to go with brown accessories, and I love how it turned out! For fall, the pairing is so classic! I know I grew up hearing that black and brown didn’t belong together, but I couldn’t disagree more! I mean, if leopards can pull off the look, why can’t I?! 😉
Fit is oversized in the dress. I am wearing a medium, and recommend sizing down if you are in between sizes! It is also currently 20% off, which brings the price down to only $22! It does also come in a blue denim if that’s more your speed!
For the shoes, fit is snug. Since they are real leather, I recommend staying true to size. They will stretch! Just know that it will take a bit of time to break them in!
