It used to be that a woman would don an oversized men’s button-down shirt bathed in the afterglow of a mighty jackhammering, so that she could putter around in the kitchen for a post-coital snack. It is a sexy look, and was supposed to be meant for her man’s eyes only.
Somehow, in the past year, the shirt dress has migrated from the privacy of the bedroom to corporate boardrooms. The boardroom has become the bedroom. There are women wearing the equivalent of “I just got fucked” clothes in public. It’s not any less sexy to look at, but it is jarring to see it all over town. And most of these shirt dress-wearing women aren’t hedging their hedgerow with shorts underneath; that’s nothing but hip bone and panty peeking out from the high and tight shirt dress seam.
I’ll leave it as an exercise for the reader what the shirt dress trend says about our currently operative sexual market.
