Dad Shirts are the Best Shirts.

Last week it was grandpa blazers and this week it is dad shirts. IDK what is happening to my style and why I want to dress like a man but I am just l-o-v-i-n-g a good dad shirt right now.

What is a dad shirt, you might ask?

It’s a slightly boxy short sleeve button down; preferably in a crazy print like this one.

If you aren’t up for something too crazy start with the gateway of dad shirts: the Madewell Courier Shirt in white. This shirt has been my best friend all summer long (see it in action here) and is what really got me into short sleeve button downs. I can’t stop wearing it. From there I moved onto this slightly kookier version (love the buttons down the back and all of the fun summery motifs). Also, this minty fresh striped one. This tropical one is the zaniest of all my dad shirts but it may just be my favorite of all!

I recommend styling your dad shirt with something more feminine. Try knotting it at the waist with a skirt, pairing with jeans and stilettos as I did here. Or just add a big fun earring!

  5. These shirts are SUCH a huge trend in menswear as well – we’re loving them at Perry Ellis, and I love that it’s transitioning into womenswear too!
