A shirtdress is a style of dress that borrows details from a man's shirt. Shirt dresses were sometimes called "shirtwaist dresses" when they were fashionable during the 1950s. The 1950s version of the shirtdress was launched as part of Christian Dior's post–World War II "New Look" couture designs, with a full skirt held up by wearing a crinoline.
It's no surprise why Altuzarra chose the shirt dress for his limited edition capsule. The shirt dress is an often look on runways each season.
