Shirt dresses are big news for Spring 2024 and these M&S look great for work or a date night.

I know how tricky it can be to find a dress that can be versatile, but I think the shirt dress is the item everybody needs for Spring 2024 and beyond. Whether you are a fan of more muted practical styles or adore brighter colours and floral patterns, there is something to suit everyone, particularly at M&S. 

The reason why I am such a huge fan of shirt dresses is not only do they work perfectly in the spring or summer months but you can wear them to work, out for lunch, on a date, or even as a wedding guest. Sometimes too many options can be overwhelming which I decided just to focus on five M&S shirt dresses for you to choose from.

I am totally obsessed with this Monsoon floral shirt dress, from the colour to the feminine feel. The midaxi length (in case you didn’t know, the style is between a midi and maxi style). The tie waist and three-quarter sleeves dress also has a collared neckline which gives it a classic style.

I never used to like animal print when it came to fashion but now I am utterly crazy about it. It’s therefore not a surprise that I adore this Sosander dress that is only available online at M&S. I think it works perfectly for work or even on a date night. Dress it up with heels or even add trainers for more of a casual look

I love the relaxed feel of this dress. Made of pure cotton, I think it works perfectly for summer and can work for a picnic, lunch date, or whatever you feel like. The three-quarter sleeves feature elasticated cuffs and the collared neckline gives it a slightly more formal look.

This relaxed shirt dress is ideal for (fingers crossed!) sunnier days. For those of you who are lucky enough to be jetting off to somewhere warm soon, this is definitely worth packing in your suitcase.

White is the ideal colour for spring and summer, and yes I know it may not be the most practical. The elements that I adore are the short puff sleeves and broderie fabric, it is just so pretty!

What I like the best about shirt dresses is that they look stylish and are comfortable to wear. Long gone are the days when you had to look fashionable but feel uncomfortable.

Fashion designers know all too well that women want ease when it comes to their wardrobe and the shirt dress is just so flexible. The problem I might have however is that my wardrobe might soon be full of shirt dresses!
