Dresshirt is an American Sportswear brand for women born from the re-interpretation of a man’s shirt.

 

Dresshirt is a creating a space for women that men have had for centuries, well-fitting clothes that inspire confidence and attract attention without demanding it. Inspired by the founder's experience as a designer at Ralph Lauren and from borrowing and altering her husband's shirts, Dresshirt is re-establishing the pillars of American Sportswear for independent and stylish women, beginning with the shirt. 

In 2014 Marieclaire St John launched Dresshirt, a simple silk shirt that was “designed for a man but made for a woman.” With classic menswear features, such as removable collars and custom embroidery, it quickly became an icon. Marieclaire and Dresshirt were awarded Forbes 30 under 30 in 2017 for being a pioneer of the customization trend and creating an internationally recognized brand with only one item.

 

“I didn’t invent the shirt; I just perfected it for women.” — Marieclaire St John


Today, the collection continues to grow, playing with concepts of sport and leisure as interpreted by Carolyn Bessette and other effortless American fashion icons, through smartly edited, elevated shirting and other menswear-inspired classics. Each pattern is perfected by a Savile Row tailor, before being manufactured in New York using the finest fabrics from Italy and Japan.


This year the collection introduces the brand’s signature Sport Silk; a three weight Italian technical knit, which is UV protective, wrinkle resistant, quick drying and ultra comfortable while being so finely made that it is best cut completely raw. A unique combination of luxury and athleticism, the fabric is as flexible as the clothing is constructed and as the lives of the women who wear the brand.
