Imagine our excitement when we spotted a trend on some of our favorite stars that was flattering and work-appropriate! Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba and Kate Bosworth (in Diesel) have all stepped out in floral shirtdresses in the past few weeks, and we can’t think of an easier way to get dressed in the morning. Throw on a pair of strappy sandals like Kate and you’re set for a weekend brunch — add heels like Jessica and you are set for a day at the office. Here are a few of our favorites that we found online:

Sleeveless Floral Shirtdress, $30 at

Bicolor Floral Shirt Dress, $80 at

Semantiks Print Shirtdress, $98 at

O Oscar Sleeveless Poppy-Print Shirtdress, $127 at

Lilly Pulitzer Printed Shirtdress, $248 at

Ugly, ugly, and ugly! Yuck!

Ferrare on

I’ve been searching for Jessica Alba’s dress, ever since she wore it on The View… Any clues? Thanks!!!

Elda on

i like Kate’s dress the best.

Cheryl on

Kate looks cute…reminds me of dresses my grand mother wore in pictures in the 60’s.

Katelyn on

Kate looks the best. I love the dress and would wear it. Jessica B. looks unnatural and Jessica Alba looks like a granny. She has a Paris Hilton thing going on with her hair.

Colette on

Kate looks the best. I won’t be going in for this trend as shirts and shirtdresses look very bad on me.

I love Jessica Alba, but the dress she is wearing looks like my Grandmother’s curtains circa 1989!! her shoes are cute though:)

Lucia on

i love all there summer dress’…i am still trying to find my perfect summer dress…

Kaylie on

The only reason Jessica Alba gets away with this look is that she has a perfect body and great hair. Honestly, that dress looks like my grandma’s dinner table placemats. And is it just me or does Jessica Biel look like she’s trying to hide??? But the strangest thing of all is that Kate Bosworth looks really cute in her dress. Hmm….

mirta on

very ugly i like sexy dresses not grandma dresses

Emilee ♥ on

Very cute look. I own a shirtdress, but it’s in a solid color, not a pattern in floral, I do however own a few dresses in floral pattern, especially the black and white floral patterns, which I’ve been wearing a lot this Summer.

These shirtdresses are cute, but the patterns are icky looking, especially Jessica Alba’s. Her floral pattern looks like my Grandma’s couch pattern with matching curtains. Jessica Biel’s shirtdress just looks too old ladyish, I like short sleeves better. Kate’s dress looks the best. The pattern seems more pleasantly delicate and understated, and the belt looks very cute.

compared to how skanky you dress of course they will look like a grandma. This look is classy

i think that it looks grannyish but the smaller prints

molly on

i am not a fan of jessica biel’s dress. i like jessica albas because its looks more put together. jessica biel’s is too frumpy and dry.

Chelsea on

Kate’s dress is actually made by DIESEL. I have it too and it’s beautiful! I get compliments all the time…

JJ on

Help! Somebody stole my grandma’s tablecloths!

amy on

they look great and relax..

Lisa on

Where can I find Jessica Biel’s green empire waist dress – seen on Star Tracks 7/10? Thanks!

Kathryn on

How do I get the shirtdress that Kate Bosworth is wearing? I thought it would be listed but cannot find it!

Sabrina on

These girls are to young to be wearing dressses like these…
I personally think these are all ugly dressses!

SD on

Kate Bosworth looks great! I love the pastel color and how she wore a belt with the dress. Her shoes match perfectly, too. Jessica Alba usually looks great but the colors on that dress are so ugly. It’s hard to see Jessica Biel’s, since the picture is from the side. I think that short sleeves look much better on shirtdresses. Definitely, Kate wears this look best.

kelp on

I think these particular dresses look rather dowdy and matronly. They kind of remind me of my grandma…
I prefer a more laid back kinda style. Probably because these dresses don’t really suit a teenager. But to each their own.

Kathryn on

Thanks for the information about Kate’s dress. It was apparently made by Disel. But, where can I get it?

Dominique on

Ick I hate floral anything
