Something so simple that can turn chic in 1,2,3! A trend that can alter into all shapes, sizes and styles, I guarantee you will be falling for the shift dress! Easily turn this retro find into a modern day essential. There are so many ways and designs that allow you to turn the shift dress into your own… How can you not love it?


Get into detail with intricate cut outs. The Josette Cutwork Shift from Anthropologie is a great dress to mix with some of your favourite shoes. You could go completely boho with small platform Kaanas sandals. This effortless style is easy to accomplish and looks picture perfect. This dress is a great piece to wear for special occasions or just being out and about. Not to mention, the detailed cut outs are uniquely stunning!


Convinced that your wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without some colour? If so, I am confident you will love rocking these next two styles! Speaking of colour, orange is a vibrant tone that is great to stand out and turn heads. This Missguided Shift Dress is a great option that will guarantee to be anything less of stylish. What I also love about this look is that there is no need to over accessorize. A simple gold cuff and some funky RayBan sunglasses does just the trick.

Another swatch from the colour palette to rock when it comes to a shift dress is pastel! I love the pastel blue tone in this Asos dress and the way it is dressed up with a casual twist. A very Parisienne style Ann Taylor Jacket and nude BP flats are all a suitable fit for one another! Adding layers of various pearl necklaces turns this look into a ladylike ensemble.


If you are looking for a different approach when it comes to styling your wardrobe, add a little texture. This Ottod’ Ame textured shift dress is a modern piece anyone could love. It is an easy to execute option and once again looks great with flats or heels. My go to way to dress for this design is with a pair of open toe espadrilles from Cynthia Vincent like pictured. It gives off a laid-back vibe but will show off that you definitely know your style!!

Bell Sleeves

Go extra feminine with big sleeves… the bigger the better! Bell sleeves make this understated frock feel retro. The Nasty Gal Winnie Bell Sleeve Dress can alter into classic girly attire with heels or an edgy boho vibe with a pair of embroidered floral black booties. I am absolutely all for putting a new flare on a feminine design. The floral booties have a western style that when worn with a shift dress, they take your fashion game to the next level!

Whether you like chic and clean, simplicity with one-of-a kind details or a flowing frock, these designs can give you everything you need. The shift dress will have you step out in style wherever spring may find you!
