It's a Shirt! It's a Dress! It's a Shirtdress!

Every spring I feel the draw of a crisp shirtdress—even more so in this season of military inspiration. Easy and basic, it's a staple of the women's warm weather wardrobes. The tricky part is finding one that's not too short (if you plan on wearing it to an office) and not too bulkified with pockets and epaulets.

Banana Republic's version, above ($120), is made of crinkly cotton, suggesting you could toss it in a suitcase and not have to worry about it getting (more) wrinkled.

I like this elegant take by Diane Von Furstenberg, although the price ($325) is a little steep.

Striped linen is appropriate for the office but also has that just-breezing-around-my-summer-house vibe. $89 at

A slim and unbelted version for a less wholesome look, by Organic by John Patrick. It's on sale for $185.50 at
