Streamlined tailoring isn't just for the office: Dorothy Perkins shirt dresses are your everyday go-tos, taking you from casual coffee with the girls in the morning to date night drinks.

Weekend-ready with Dorothy Perkins shirt dresses

Shirt dresses may borrow from traditional menswear made for the office, but these designs are more than ready to take on the weekend - and so are we. Team a printed design with perspex-heeled sandals for Friday night drinks, and add a leather jacket for a rock 'n' roll edge. Embrace the pyjama trend in a silky dress with piping on the lapels, or a stripy piece. Team with slipper-style slip-ons in velvet or leather. If you're adventuring out to the pub, try a plaid design with leggings, ankle boots and layer on a chunky knitted jumper for a lost-in-the-countryside vibe (thank goodness for your maps app).

Office-appropriate Dorothy Perkins shirt dresses

The best thing about Dorothy Perkins shirt dresses? They're an all-in-one office-ready ensemble, so you won't need to piece together an outfit in a hurry (after the third time of snoozing the alarm). Pick a block-coloured knee-length dress and pair with pointed heels for a demure deskside look that’s as suitable for a pre-lunch meeting as after-work networking. On casual days, a boredom-busting bright print will liven up the 9-to-5. Button up to the collar and wear with glossy loafers for a preppy-meets-pretty finish.
