Citizen’s Arrest: the shirt dress gets literal

shirt-dress

This item was apprehended at Zappos by Style Bargain Hunter, who points out that it’s not a shirt, not even a NIGHTshirt. Nope, it’s a dress, and is designed to be worn “as is”, for that “Look, I just threw on my boyfriend’s shirt and I still look fabulous!” look. It’s a hard look to pull off – most people who try just end up looking like the fire alarm went off while they were in the middle of getting dressed – but do you think you could do it? If so, it’s £265 here. Or, of course, an ACTUAL nightshirt will give you a similar look, only much cheaper…

    I hated the original look, plus the advert a couple of years ago that dug it up from its eighties grave, and only hope this latest incarnation will go no further.

    If we ever see such a thing, we should all say, “Oh, I love that! I bought the same thing at Sportman’s Guide and it is so comfy!” That should put a stop to wearing it out in public, anyway. (and I did buy the same nightshirt from Sportsman’s Guide, and it was supposed to be a nightshirt)

    I don’t think it’s that bad, but I would never wear it “as is!” It really needs a belt, or tights, or both. :/

    yeah i agree with diandra and mizzmakova, it needs leggings/tights, cute shoes, good bag and maybe a belt and it will look really cute! without, it would just be weird. OH! and take away that slit.

    I own a similar shirt, which was intended as a long shirt and is an integral part of my authentic Wild West outfits. I like the look of this, but I would NEVER wear it as a dress! (And even as a shirt it desperately needs accessories.)
