Have you ever put on an outfit and immediately just felt like a total bad@$$? There are pieces that have this magical power: a vibrant red pantsuit, a leather mini with a moto jacket, and let’s not forget the ever-so-classic shirtdress. This might be one of the most under-appreciated pieces of clothing that exist. For me, the shirtdress symbolizes power because it’s 1) structured and 2) classy. While wearing more revealing clothing can make you feel like a sexy little bad@$$, wearing modestly classic ensembles can just make you feel powerful. Have I gotten my point across yet?
Let me give an example: the second I tugged on this mini shirtdress, I felt my posture change entirely. I immediately stood up straighter, and it seemed as though I could conquer anything that came my way. There’s a reason the shirtdress was (and still is) one of the most popular pieces of business attire. Of course, as perfect as it is in an office setting, there are plenty of other uses for it.
For my look, I was thinking along the lines of happy hour or brunch dates. I skipped out on a pair of flats, and opted for my favorite block heels. I’m crushed that these are sold out now, but I’ve linked some similar pairs for you to shop! My accessories stayed minimal with my most classic timepiece and the cutest, rose gold, cactus pendant necklace! Since there are so few accessories required to make this look effortlessly chic, it makes a great “roll out of bed, throw on some mascara and lipstick, and GO” kind of outfit (much-needed on those brunch weekends)!
Of course, you can also get as casual as possible with a pair of sneakers, a top knot, and a colorful crossbody bag. I could see myself wearing it that way while playing tourist in my own city, or exploring a new spot away from home! It’s comfy, it’s cute, and you will absolutely feel like an utter bad@$$. What are some of your most powerful pieces?
