I love back-to-school time, especially because it brings me that much closer to my graduation, my degree! I know that makes me something of a nerd, and I’m okay with that… because I know I also love back-to-school for all of the shopping possibilities! This year I’m in love with shirt dresses for back-to-school, so I’ve been hunting for them at all my favorite online stores… here’s my list of 7 cute shirt dresses for back-to-school, all from!

1 Soda Fountain Dress

Price: $44.99 at
So flattering, so pretty, so perfect for back-to-school! Pair with a cardigan for chilly mornings and wear with your favorite flats or pumps. I love the shape and the retro-inspired details. It’s available in black, ginger (yellow) or grape (purple).

2 Chick Flick Dress

Price: $54.99 at
This may look like a straightforward shirt dress, but look closely. It’s got a unique deep vee neckline and the safari sleeves are marvelous! And who doesn’t love plaid this season? Pair with navy flats or even leggings, a long-sleeved tee underneath, and cute boots.

3 About the Author Dress

Price: $52.99 at
All feminine details, all flattering lines! What else could you want in a shirt dress? I love the ruffles down the front, and the black buttons and accents. Pair with any of your black shoes, or add a splash of color with yellow or red flats and a matching bag.

4 Hepcat Dress

Price: $49.99 at
The only way this dress could be better is if I already owned all three colors and they all looked as good on me as they will, undoubtedly, on you! I love the Lemon Cream with white dots the best, but it’s also marvelous in blue and black!

5 Break of Dawn Dress

Price: $52.99 at
I love the soft color and sweet lines of this shirt dress! The hue is that same shade of the skyline at dawn, part pink, park grey, and it’s so pretty! Wear with printed tights and matching heels, and add drop earrings and your grandmother’s charm bracelet. Perfect!

6 Sunnydale Dress

Price: $74.99 at
Feminine floral print meets retro-inspired shirt dress! Add a pair of vintage heels and a soft cashmere cardigan for a decidedly 1950s appeal, or modernize with your favorite pair of Steve Maddens.

7 Signature Dark Dress

Price: $117.99 at
This is my absolute favorite shirt dress of the season, all mocha hues and gorgeous details. I love the eyelet, and the shape is so very flattering! It smooth all of my figure flaws and gives me a shape I’ve only dreamed of. I wear it with my favorite spectator pumps and tortoise-shell sunglasses. How will you wear it?

If you don’t have any of these gorgeous shirt dresses in your back-to-school wardrobe yet, what are you waiting for? Which of these do you have to have, and how will you wear it the first day of school? Please let me know!
