Must Haves: 12 Simple Yet Sexy Shirtdresses

I have always found shirtdresses to be unexpectedly sexy, reminiscent of how a woman looks when she wears her man’s button-down to bed. There is something to be said for a full-coverage dress that could rip right open.  Plus, shirtdresses are super versatile — wear them now with strappy sandals and later with tights and booties.

Style 911: “Help Me Tina Fey’s Red Dress From The ‘Saturday Night Live’ Premiere!”

Style 911: "Help Me Tina Fey's Red Dress From The 'Saturday Night Live' Premiere!"

HELP! I just watched Tina Fey’s ‘SNL’ episode that premiered a few weeks ago and I am obsessed with the red dress she is wearing in the opening monologue. The only links I could find with “Tina Fey” and “red dress” were pretty much only concerned with her recent nip slip and not her actual dress- ha! Help me out, please! – Katy

First of all, Katy, I would like to apologize for the delay in responding to your request. Damn Gmail and it’s weird sorting! Anyway, I wasn’t able to figure out who designed the dress Tina was wearing during her opening monologue oh so many weeks ago, but let’s face it, it was probably a high-end designer piece with a hefty price tag. The good news is that this particular silhouette is everywhere and there were so many similar options that I actually had to narrow it down to just seven — three with similar short and/or cap-sleeves, and four with slightly longer or three-quarter sleeves. But all in bright fire engine red. Check ‘em out below! Keep reading »

Style 911: “Find Me A Cheaper Version Of Kat Dennings’ Look!”

“Hey y’all, Looking for this dress or a way cheaper version of this look Kat Dennings wore to the ‘Thor’ premiere. The dress, the lips, the nails, the shoes… everything! Can you help?” — Ashley

Ashley, I could not agree with you more. Kat Dennings is stunning in this Naeem Khan cocktail dress. The neck-to-knee burgundy embroidery accentuates her every curve, and Kat’s choice to pair this dress with simple eye makeup, matching lipstick, nude pumps, and glittery purse makes for an alluring combination. If I could find this dress for less, I would be wearing it right now. Unfortunately, I’m gonna guestimate that this Naeem Khan cocktail dress will sell for over $1,000 once it’s available. The good news is, you can recreate this look by substituting the red dress for some of these affordable options…

Winona’s Style Challenge: Find Me Curve-Conscious Dresses For Under $150

Winona’s been craving a style makeover. She wants to change up her wardrobe and add some spiiiiice with some bombshell-style fitted dresses that really accentuate her va-va-voom curves. (Think “Mad Men”‘s Joan Holloway for reference.) The trick, of course, with this 1960s silhouette is looking cute without veering to close to costume-y. You’re not in the touring company of “Hairspray,” after all. If you’re craving some retro-fied curvy numbers, there’s a bevy of online options. Shops like Shabby Apple, Bettie Page Clothing, Daddy-O’s, Unique Vintage and Trashy Diva are all great resources if you’re looking for reproductions of styles from the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s, while sites like Modcloth offer more modern takes on those designs.

But getting back to Winona! I’ve chosen five curvy and cute dresses that she can wear day or night––for less than $150 each!

1. Modcloth American Glamstand Dress, $147.99
2. Coldwater Creek Hourglass Stripe Dress, $129./95
