And if you thought that shirt dress’s lacked versatility, I’ll stop you in your heel-clad tracks right there! The proof? These gorgeous looks! Read on for 10 omg-ah-mazing shirt style looks and how you can get these luxe styles for less…

Is it a bird? (Well, technically, in Northern English lingo yes) Is it a plane? Nope it’s a shirt dress worn backwards!
Mind blown? Sure is.
To make your shirt dress look like a whole new piece, just unbutton it about a quarter of the way down, throw on backwards and slide saucily off the shoulder. Tie a waistband in a large bow to cinch in that tummy, then throw on a fedora to make it score a big fat ten on the Riviera scale!
Please note: The Daily Luxe is not responsible for any awkward back unbuttoning
Gigi Hadid, do you ever get it wrong? This slit shirt dress and boots combo is the perfectly balanced brew of quirky, feminine and sexy!
Opt for a slouchy, slit piece and wear non-nonchalantly with high-shine black boots. Cos you like, totally, stole these shoes from your boyfriend!
♫ Hello, who are you? ♫
Even if you say freaking cousin it, I still want to be you. **Sighs**
This skater shape dress is a pear-shaped girls bezzie! Go just that little bit nautical and add a saddle bag and a fedora. You can even ride a bike too, if you feel hipster enough!
A shirt dress and a tan go together like Brad and Angelina.
Who knew that a maxi shirt dress could make such a stylish beach coverup? Pack this baby for your next vacay and whack on for an instant pool to bar look!
Or simply throw on to keep the sunburn at bay! A wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses are perfect for protecting from those pesky (but oh so warm) rays.
This girl is seriously the Einstein of the styling world!
Upon first thought, a maxi dress over jeans sounds totally ridiculous. Make that dress a shirt dress, unbutton and now we’re talking! Add a laid-back black hat, bag and flats to keep it cool and casual.
It’s girls like this one that make me feel like the Susan Boyle of the fashion world. Like…. seriously?
Socks and brogues, a fluffy bag and a colour-block jacket may sound like an overkill, but this look still passes as understated! Why? I hear you ask…. that plain white shirt dress that is the total central point!
♫ Hey sexy lady! Hey hey hey hey hey split dress lace up style!♫
Shirt dresses are anything but innocent! Although some tribe of nuns might wear them as a uniform in some part of the world, this babe has given the trend a bit of a naughty name! Opt for a high-slit maxi shirt, and let your lace up heels do the talking! An aptly placed wide belt will also draw the eyes to all your assets!
Who is this odd looking lady? (Psssttt… you can see my full outfit post for this look here)
This strange creature has combined knee high boots with her striped shirt dress. I don’t mean to blow my own trumpet here, but I think it works!
Sporty and polished may seemingly be at opposite ends of the fashion spectrum. This look cleverly laces them together!
A chambray shirt dress is a timeless staple for every wardrobe, so make yours a bit different with a sporty cap and sneakers! That second shirt tied around the waist should be in the dictionary next to effortless. Love.
Kristina Bazan is total blogging goals. In more ways than one.
She makes this over-sized cornflower boyfriend dress look like an Oscar De La Renta gown. Although I can by no means transport you to this paradise she inhabits, I can advise you to roll up those sleeves, braid those salty locks and add a saddle bag!
Now can we have her career while too? **Does puppy eyes** Pretty please!
