The shirt dress was originally designed by French fashion designer Christian Dior during the 1950’s. A shirt dress is a style of women's dress that borrows details from a man's shirt. These can include a collar, a button front, or cuffed sleeves. As they are typically cut without a seam at the waist, these dresses often have a looser fit, usually relying on a belt to define the waist.
With this in mind, the KINA shirt dress was designed, named after my pet name from my god children, Rojeanne, Dané and Nicolene. I have always liked the Androgynous look (partly male and partly female in appearance) and the KINA shirt dress is exactly that.
The burnt amber with grey/blue square design makes it the perfect shirt dress. Add a touch of matching floral print from the MIA shirt dress or wear it just on its own. The KINA shirtdress comes with 2 tie belts (Mia/Kina fabric) to tie around your waist, wear as a neck tie, make a pretty bow, a thin scarf or as a hair band. The blue buttons on the dress compliment the colour and style of the dress. The style options to choose from make this dress unique and exclusive. You can choose your collar style (shirt or mandarin), top pocket design, side pockets, sleeve length, cuffs (plain or combo with Mia) and your dress length. The dress has a back yoke with a pleat for that extra bit of volume over the hips.
The KINAshirt dress is a very versatile dress and should be a staple item in every woman’s wardrobe. Wear it with navy leggings, add flats or sneakers and a large clutch or other comfy bag, and voila! In the cooler weather, try wearing a long-sleeved T-shirt underneath for a casual but fashionable look. Alternatively, wear a denim jacket, utility jacket, or long line cardigan over the top. You can also pair the KINAshirt dress with a pair of jeans, add heels or boots and you are ready to go! Please have a look on our fb page for more ideas on “How to wear the KINA shirt dress.”
The fabric is a Rayon mix for easy wear and easy care.
The model is 1.82 m tall, wears a size M and the dress length is 130 cm from shoulder to hem. The sleeve length is 65 cm and includes the cuff of 9 cm (Kina/Mia combo). The dress has a shirt collar, top pocket with a flap on the left only and side pockets.
