Collared dress styles are becoming increasingly popular. If anything, I think we can put it down to the Alexa Chung effect. The look is a little bit preppy and a little bit vintage inspired, and it looks quite charming. The most popular style is the collared shirt dress, but there are a range of different designer interpretations of this trend out there. Take a look at a few examples of collared dresses below.
1 Topshop Crochet Shirt Dress
This coral collared shirt dress is a modern take on the design. This sleeveless dress features a cut-out back design, v-neck collar, and full skirt. The crochet fabric is on-trend for the season. Work a playful look by layering a contrasting coloured slip underneath.
2 Topshop Pleat Midi Shirt Dress
It’s all about bright colours right now, and you can’t get much brighter than this number. This sleeveless dress is made from a sheer fabric and has a button-up collar, concealed placket, and pleated midi skirt. This dress would look great teamed with leather strap sandals and a framed handbag.
3 Dorothy Perkins Nude Pearl Collar Dress
An embellished collar is great if you’re after something dressier. This feminine looking dress comes in a pale nude colour and features a Peter Pan style embellished collar. It also has a very 60s inspired shift design. Wear this collared dress with Mary Jane pumps, dainty earrings, and a flick of winged eyeliner.
4 Topshop Crepe Shirt Dress
You can’t go past a basic white collared dress. This dress has a fitted bodice and full skirt. The plain white colour can act as a blank canvas, to be styled up or down. Make a seasonal statement with colourful accessories, or layer it with knits and brogues for a schoolgirl inspired look.
5 Carven Pique Polo Dress
This short sleeved collared dress is perfect for pulling off this season’s sport inspired trends. This dress has a preppy feel to it, but the cut-out detail at the back gives it a bit more bite. Work a relaxed weekend look by teaming this dress with flat leather sandals and minimal accessories.
6 Karl Interlock Collared Dress
This black and white dress could come across as a bit severe and matronly, but the body hugging design and low back give it some extra oomph. It’s typical of the Karl Lagerfeld aesthetic. The white poplin collar is also detachable, making this dress even more versatile.
7 Dorothy Perkins Black Sleeved Collar Dress
Looking for a new LBD? Why not try one in a collared style? This short black collared dress has voluminous sleeves, tie waist belt, and diamante buttons. Team it with ballet flats and an oversized bag for a chic everyday look.
8 Versus Patchwork Cotton Blend Dress
If really expensive clothes make you want to cry, then avert your eyes now. This collared dress has a very contemporary design. It features a mix of asymmetric fuchsia, floral, and white panels. With busier dresses like this one, keep the rest of your accessories fairly simple.
A collared dress can be a great way to add some extra polish to your look. Sleeveless styles are perfect for the warmer months, and can be layered up during autumn and winter. Which of these collared dresses do you like best?
