Nicole Richie is no stranger to fashion risks. For one, her hair is lavender and she’s got a phone full of contacts that probably reads like the credits in Vogue‘s September issue. Richie has always pushed the fashion envelope, but most of us know her for her signature bohemian style. But to fête her friend Ryan Korban’s new book, Luxury Redefined, at L.A.’s Curve boutique, Richie stepped out of her usual billowing styles and opted for a sex-on-stilettos take on the classic shirtdress. The result? Let’s just say that it’s not for everyone, but everyone does need a go-to shirtdress in their wardrobe.

Inspired by a man’s shirt, the shirt dress has long been an article of clothing that’s “nice” and “safe,” but it’s also been interpreted as a super sexy choice too. After all, it’s supposed to look like you’ve just pulled on something borrowed from your boyfriend and most of the time, its worn sans pants, giving you a chance to flash major swathes of skin and plenty of leg. While we all might not be as comfortable as Richie, bearing chest and legs, we can button up just a little and get a great day-to-night look with this one-piece wonder. Pair it with your favorite pumps and you’re set whether you’re headed out for dinner or you’re taking it easy on the weekend. Casual and cocktail-ready? How many pieces in your closet can you say that about?
