Dress Smarts

by The Zoe Report

Embarking upon a new fashion season always conjures up visions of fresh trends and original designs, but it is not uncommon to see a few classic looks in the mix, too. Certain coveted styles—à la the shirt dress trend—prove themselves year after year. Chris Benz’s contemporary take on the steadfast silhouette is my latest pick du jour!

When looking to expand your wardrobe with something that can be worn year-round, a shirt dress is a great place to start. A smart and stylish interpretation of the look, I selected this piece because it feels utilitarian—with a drawstring waist, hold-all pockets and deep yellow hue—yet still feminine and effortless. Not to mention, I love anything and everything that Chris Benz creates! Wear this flattering frock throughout spring and summer with some strappy sandals…and then come fall, just add some tights and shooties to the equation! Loves it. xoRZ
