Style is the only thing you can’t buy. It’s not in a shopping bag, a label, or a price tag. It’s something reflected from our soul to the outside world—an emotion.”—Alber Elbaz
Your wardrobe needs dresses, and a shift dress is such a versatile piece you shouldn’t deprive yourself of. Not only are shift dresses flattering, they’re perfect for every occasion.
I absolutely love a great shift dress. They’re really flattering, appropriate for so many different occasions. But what IS a shift dress exactly? The “shift” part refers to the actual cut of the dress, which extends in a straight, simple line down from the shoulder. It’s typically shorter in length to hit above the knee. It’s one of the most iconic dress shapes of all time, and became popular in the 1920’s–the shorter hemlines were rebellious, and they also happened to be easy to dance in! Shift dresses have been a popular choice for women of all ages and for all occasions ever since!
Best classic silhouettes out here, particularly because it looks good on a variety of body types–a black shift is the most universally flattering in my opinion ? While shift dresses are all similar in shape, they do come with different features to acommodate different body types! For example, if you have a larger bust, look for a dress with a v-neck as opposed to a high-neck, as well as one with darts to properly fit your bust. If you’re pear shaped, a more A-line shaped shift dress will likely provide a better fit! To accentuate curves (or even create them!) and define the waist, you can also add a belt!
