I always look forward to reading the "Find Your Perfect" column, and May's spotlight on the shirtdress really propelled me to do some shopping—and it yielded great results. This light, breezy, wear-with-anything piece has quickly become a wardrobe mainstay. I love how it's so comfortable, but sophisticated and polished at the same time. It can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion with different accessories and shoes, like subbing these multicolor sneakers for a pair of graphic high-heels. All in all, it's the ideal staple piece.
