Shift Into Gear

shift


Styles will come and go but the shift dress has been a style that women have embraced for many years. With a simple, straight silhouette it hangs on the body just right. Women of many different shapes and sizes can wear this look because of its simple, non-clingy nature.

A shift dress in a solid color (or even in black) is always a safe bet. Picking a dress in a solid color guarantees that you will wear it for years to come. You can always bring a garment up-to-date with accessories. A bold statement necklace or earrings are just what you need to take a dress from simple to stunning with little effort.

With the obsession that I am currently having with leather, I had to include at least one dress in the fabric. A leather or lace shift dress definitely gives the classic silhouette a modern twist and would be fabulous in any woman's closet.

I hope you guys have a great day!

  9. I usually belt my shift dresses to give them a bit more shape, but there are some that end up looking perfect as-is. I love the ones you featured!

  20. I couldn't agree more! I love the shift dress because it hides all of the mid section and muffin tops! :) I just wish they made them a little longer because of my height. Divine choices, my friend!
