Says Fashion Designer Sonia Mehra- “ I highly recommend a shirtdress this spring season. They are warm weather friendly; they give out bohemian, classy and edgy vibe like no other. Look out for embellished shirtdresses, flowy shirtdresses or bold floral printed pieces which are absolutely en vogue. It highlights minimal style to the hilt. A few printed, cheerful stripes and chambray shirtdresses are my must-haves. Florals, nautical stripes, checks, fun prints, unique prints, batik prints, bandhani all of it is in this season. I must add that if you manage to invest in a denim shirt dress or a crisp, white shirt dress and you’ll thank yourself for years to come. ”
