Danielle technical shirt dress - black
Our technical shirt dress is a "throw and go" style - the type of garment that will just be there for you. In one easy wardrobe move, you're dressed and ready to take on the world. She buttons all the way through, so can be worn as a duster jacket and is also feeding-friendly. Danielle has long sleeves, so you can roll them or wear long, layered under a longline cardi or blazer.
The high-low hem is flattering and we've included lining in the skirt part of the dress, so you are saved from flashing in case of windy conditions. This is a relaxed style. If you prefer a more streamlined look and have a smaller bust, size down.
The stitched waist detailing offers an illusion of shape in the garment but you can also belt this dress and create a totally different look. Did we mention she has pockets? Oh, yes she does!
This is purposely a relaxed fit - my suggestion is if you already have a Cate shirt in your collection, then stick with that size. Generally speaking, if you're petite in the bust or across the shoulders, then size down. Click the Fit tab for bust measurements of our models.
Made in Australia.
Wear loose and lovely with sneakers and slides or dress up by belting and adding heels or boots. In cooler months, wear layered over leggings and add a longline cardi or blazer.

100% TECHNICAL POLYESTER.
Cold hand wash. Dry in shade. Do not soak, wring or bleach. Do not tumble dry. Cool iron. Dry cleanable (P).
Let's talk technical - as a fabric. This is a breathable easy-care; easy-wear fabric. You can pop it in the wash in a garment bag and hang out to dry in no time at all. I hang mine on hangers and find it needs very little in the ironing department, if any at all. Technical fabrics are ideal for travel as they are super light and take up next to no space in your suitcase.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to work out what size you are in Styling You The Label. That's why we photographed our pieces on each size we're stocking. We've also included each model's measurements as well as each garment's measurements on each product listing.
TIP: Whenever you're shopping for clothes online, it's a good idea to keep your tape measure handy and have your own measurements written down somewhere (maybe in the Notes on your phone) so you can easily look them up and compare them with that listed on our product pages.
We've included at generic size chart below. This is what our patterns have been developed from. Please use this as a guide only and read each individual product listing, which take into account fit/stretch and the shape of the garment, and whether any of our models have sized up or down for a better fit.
Please note: the below chart is different from the charts shown on the individual product pages. Those charts are measurements of the garments themselves (across the body or length from seam to seam).
Our models are mostly wearing the size they'd normally wear; there are a few variations on this but they are included on each product listing. It may not necessarily mean that you size up or down accordingly as it may be because of the shape of the garment and that model's individual size.
