The Essential Guide to Women's Dress Shirts for Professionals

When it comes to dressing for the office, women are often faced with a multitude of wardrobe choices. Which can be a hassle in the mornings when you have to make a choice. One of the most versatile and timeless pieces of attire is the classic dress shirt. A well-designed women's dress shirt can elevate your professional look, boost your confidence, and make you feel polished and put together. However, finding the perfect dress shirt can be a daunting task, with so many styles, cuts, and fabrics to choose from. To help you make an informed decision, this guide will take you through everything you need to know about women's dress shirts.

Finding the Right Fit

Fit is crucial. Ill-fitting shirts can look unflattering and unprofessional, regardless of how exquisite the fabric or design may be. Look for shirts that follow the shape of your body, without clinging too tightly. The shoulders should align with yours, and the cuffs should stop at your wrist bone. The length should be neither too long nor too short, with the hem hitting the hipbone. Pay attention to the bust area, as the shirt should not stretch across the chest. There should be room so you can move, without being self conscious of breaking a hem. If you have a larger bust size, go one to two sizes up and taper in the sides-- it should not be more than $20 (it's a few stitches. don't let them trick you).

Go for Quality

While a dress shirt might seem like a simple garment, the level of craftsmanship and quality can significantly impact its longevity and appearance. Look for shirts made from high-quality materials such as cotton or silk, which can breathe well and feel comfortable against your skin. Pay attention to stitching to ensure that seams are neat and sturdy.

Choose the Right Color

When selecting a dress shirt, color is a critical consideration! Darker colors such as black, navy, and dark gray are a good choice for formal settings, as they convey authority and professionalism. A perfect dark option is the Joy Navy Pleated Shirt. For a business casual setting, you can play with lighter shades such as pastels, patterns, or prints, which lend a playful yet elegant touch to your attire. White is also a timeless classic, and a crisp white shirt will never go out of style, provided you keep it bright and clean. The Attitude - white twill is an office staple and classic wardrobe piece that goes with anything and can be worn with dress pants and skirts and easy to mix to match.

Experiment with Different Styles

Dress shirts come in various styles, so it's important to find one that suits your taste, personality, and body type. A classic button-up shirt with a pointed collar is an excellent choice for formal settings. If you want to add a touch of femininity, look for shirts with ruffles, lace, or a peter-pan collar. If you prefer a more relaxed fit, try a boyfriend shirt, which is oversized and comfortable without losing its sartorial edge. If you are looking for a more modern look, opt for a wrap shirt or a blouse with puffy sleeves. Our Rapture Tunic, gives a dress shirt a modern twist with a wrap that is anything but boring.
