Is there anything more classic than a crisp button-down shirt? Even as the most ubiquitous style staple, this closet classic feels entirely fresh in dress form for the coming season. The button-down gets schooled for spring with straightforward interpretations of this prim piece elongated into dresses on the runways of Christian Dior, Eudon Choi and Nina Ricci. A few new and noteworthy remixes on the classic include the embellished editions of No.21 and Viktor and Rolf, as well as the varying hem lengths at Tod’s and BCBGMaxAzria. While staying true to its preppy, menswear roots, the spring shirtdress is the ultimate contrast between feminine and masculine, and is equal parts casual and cool as it is sexy and sophisticated. Suitable for office hours and errand running on the weekends, this on- and off-duty uniform will leave you perfectly put together, no matter the day of the week.

From day to play, the work and weekend ready shirtdress is here to stay.
