Effortlessly comfy. This dress is perfect for events where you want to stay comfortable without compromising style and looking effortless.

This stunning shirt dress has an oversized, blousy bodice with bust darts, button front opening, two-piece collar and stand, and, side seam pockets. The gathered skirt can be hemmed just above the knee, or add the midi panel for a trendy tiered look.
