Fringe Benefits: Boohoo Denim Shirt Dress

DSC06504My quest for button-down shirts is always a struggle. As a busty girl, nine out of ten times I will end up in two situations when trying to fit myself into a store-bought button-down – peek-a-boo or potato sack.  Hence, I was quite reluctant to jump on this denim shirt dress trend no matter how much I adore those cute indigo numbers. My mind didn’t change till I saw this fringed denim shirt dress on Boohoo.

Somehow the raw, frayed hem just has me mesmerised! I looked at the details of this piece and the model’s pictures over and over again, and watched that catwalk video roughly 1,000 times before I finally brought myself to place the order. And may I say – I am glad I have pulled the trigger?

Despite the site said the dress is of a regular fit, it feels more like a relaxed or boyfriend-ish kind of fit to me. Boohoo sizing usually runs a little smaller to me but I am taking my usual shirt size UK 10 here, and it gives me enough room to wiggle without getting the potato sack syndrome. So I would say for those who want a snugger fit may want to size down.

The material of the dress is a medium-weight, non-stretch denim, giving the dress a bit more structure (which is always a positive for busty girls).

To complete the look, I threw in some feminine accessories to tone down the grittiness of the dress. And there, my new day off throw-on-and-go combo is done!
