J.Jill’s Chino Shirtdress

J.Jill Chino Shirtdress

One basic that my wardrobe has been lacking for years is a great-fitting, comfortable, shirtdress.  I’ve tried so many styles that didn’t fit quite right.  They were either too baggy, too short, too long, or just looked frumpy.  J.Jill sent me this Chino Shirtdress and I’m pretty much in love with it.  It is unbelievably comfortable when paired with leggings.  Looking at it online I worried that it would be a stiff material (like an old jean jacket) but it is much softer than I could have imagined.  While it is a thicker fabric it is very soft and comfortable.  This shirtdress is fitted without being too tight, it has just the right amount of stretch and is the perfect length for wearing with flats, boots, or a low heel.

    • AshleyWalkup says

      Thank you! After just having a baby I don’t want anything drawing attention to my waistline but I do plan on adding a nice belt later on. Plus, I haven’t found the perfect belt yet either. 🙂 Thank you for commenting.

      I was impressed by that too! In fact I think it’s the only dress I’ve ever owned with pockets…because they’re not bulky.

    The shirtdress is really cute! I have to dress up a little more for my current job, so I’m always looking for cute, work appropriate outfits (and I have several shirts that are worn often because I love them so much.)

    That looks so cute on you! Shirt dresses never work for me either, I should try this one!

  38. scentednights2002 says

    What a cute dress. I generally go with jeans when I’m thinking casual but I should dress it up a bit.

  39. Karen Koblan says

    That’s such a cute dress that you can get a lot of use out of. I usually go with jeans and a t-shirt during the week. Very boring!

    Super cute dress. I love the look of a shirtdress with leggings. It’s casual, but so put together!

  47. Julie Wood says

    I love the Chino Shirtdress that you are wearing with the black tights. You look very cute in this outfit. My go to outfit is a nice pair of straight legged jeans with a nice top. But I want to try this outfit because it looks so comfortable.

  48. Nicole Brady says

    I don’t know if the shirtdress would work with my body style but I certainly prefer shirts that cover my backside! I’ll have to see if there’s J.Jill around here.

  49. This is such a cute shirtdress! It looks great on you!

  50. Dina Demarest says

    I love J Jill. That shirtdress is precious!

  51. I love the length of that top.

  52. That looks so comfortable. I really like dress styles that look great over leggings!

  53. traceynicole says

    Looks comfy but still fashionable! You should add a belt around the middle, would give it a fun touch 🙂

  54. Catherine L. says

    I love how comfortable this dress looks. It can be dressed up or down, which is a big plus.

  55. Ashley – that shirtdress is the perfect outfit to wear when you are transitioning your wardrobe from maternity to regular clothes. It is supper cute! Also, kudos to whomever took your photos…I love the one with you sitting on the tree! Thanks for sharing!

  56. Kathryn Rawson says

    That is so super cute. I don’t have the figure to pull it off, but I so wish I did. You look fabulous.

  57. SippyCupMom says

    This is super super cute! You could wear it a few different ways too, I’d love it with a belt!

  58. elizabethnorton says

    These are so cute. A great way to dress up but also feel comfy.
