Work Outfit: the Shirt-under-Dress Look

Shirt Under Dress Outfit

Layering Shirt under Dress
Shirt: BCBG | Dress: LOFT (similar here) | Shoes: Stuart Weitzman | Bag: Reed Krakoff | Bracelets: David Yurman | Watch: Michele | Earrings: Vintage

Today I'm sharing a simple work look that puts a favorite sheath dress to work as a grown-up, chic rendition of the classic schoolgirl-style jumper.

I don't often wear this type of structured collared shirt with my suits because of their tendency to quickly become untucked and unkempt-looking when I'm constantly moving around a courtroom (yes, you really do have to stand up every time you make an objection or speak at all, then sit right back down). Under a dress, however, it's a non-issue, and with the sleeves rolled down and a blazer on top, the whole look is very professional and put-together.


P.S. I am linking up with Mix & Match Fashion this week for her What I Wore to Work Linkup.


  1. I would imagine needing to be able to stand up and sit down would put such a restriction on what you can (or should!) wear to work! You look great in this outfit! I love layering shirts over dresses :)

  2. Gorgeous layering, you look stunning!

  3. Very well put together and professional outfit!

  4. I love when bloggers post really put-together work outfits. This one is perfection. I think I could definitely wear something similar.
