Garden Party Inspo

Question | My daughter wants a "garden party" themed wedding with a less formal look. I like the special occasion shirt dresses that are popular in the South. Any leads on a short, special occasion shirt dress for a curvy figure?

Answer | A shirt dress is a great idea–you can find them from casual to ball gown style. Here are a few versatile styles to kickstart start your shopping: 

Tuckernuck Tate Dress

Much to love about this style from the rich floral print to the boxy silhouette for a looser, but still stylish silhouette. The pleated skirt helps to dress it up. Sizes XXS to XXXL. $198. Buy from Tuckernuck.

Draper James "Tenille" Dress

Peachy keen! Consider this the softer side of shirt dressing with its smocked waist, faux wrap skirt and ruffled hem. Great with flats or heels. Sizes XS to 3X. $175. Buy from Draper James.

Tuckernuck "Palmerston" Dress 

The standup ruffled collar and notched neckline add to the femininity of this floral frock, which is loose at the waistline but maintains its shape thanks to that tiered skirt. Sizes XXS to XXXL. $198. Buy from Tuckernuck

Mille "Nan" Wrap Dress

Adjustable wrap styling, v-neckline, full sleeves and a flared skirt make this a pretty choice. Sizes XXS to XL. $360. Buy from Mille.
