Stuck between seasons?
During this awkward transition from winter into spring, we’re faced with a lot of change. It could snow in the morning only to melt into a long, luminous evening. More likely, it could rain all day and then rain all night too.
The unpredictable nature of the weather at this time of year can make choosing an outfit impossible. Fear not, however; we’ve got the solution.
The shirt dress is an all-rounder at adaptability and a total staple piece that can be dressed up or worn as casually as you like.
Here are five of our top spring picks from Opera Lane:
1. Black Denim Shirt Dress: €68, Topshop, Opera Lane
This dress is the ideal piece to see you through a full day, whatever your plans may be. Toughen it up with a pair of Chelsea boots from Dr. Martens at Office, Opera Lane.
2. Utility Shirt Dress, now €84 (was €169) Tommy Hilfiger, Opera Lane
An easy-to-cinch waist belt with a D-ring buckle lends elegance to this military-inspired shirt dress. The pure organic cotton is comfy to wear too and there’s a cute Tommy Hilfiger flag embroidered on the sleeve.
3. Cupro-Blend Dress, €59.99, H&M, Opera Lane
This elegant take on the classic comes in two shades; light beige and black. The calf-length is flattering on all shapes and it has an elasticated seam at the waist so it holds its shape.
4. Utility Shirt Dress, €29, Next, Opera Lane
Made from 100% cotton, this short shirt dress features on-trend utility styling, long sleeves and a tie belt that makes it flattering to every body shape. Wear yours with tights for now, then switch to strappy sandals or wedges when the sun comes out.
5. Draw-String Shirt Dress, €24.99, New Look, Opera Lane
Available in camel and grey, this chic little dress is the key to effortless daytime style. Wear with cosy tights, heeled boots and a cardigan for now, then you can team it with sandals when the weather improves.
