Red Free People Sift Dress, BP Floppy Hat, Karen Walker Super Duper Sunnies, Grey Booties 

Pulling off a shift dress doesn’t have to be as hard as it may seem. Here are some tips (that I don’t necessarily follow) but might help you feel a little more comfortable in one.  I almost always wear tights with mine because I don’t like to show this much skin. It was 20 degrees (Celsius) out and since I am rocking the whitest of white legs I figured it would be a good effort to catch some rays.  So, with that being said here are five tips that have worked in the past:

1. Add a belt to give you some shape. I personally hate adding belts because I would rather look free and frumpy and be comfortable, but it is just a personal preference.  Adding a belt just under your chest can give you more shape.

2. Choose the right length.  With this dress I almost always wear an opaque pair of tights or over the knee tights because I don’t like things being too short and my legs are surprisingly long (even though I’m real ass short).

3. Choose the right print and size.  I’ve added a couple of my favourite prints below. Some of the girls who ordered this dress already (since they are price matching right now) went up a size for some added length and are really happy with how it fits.  

4. Add some accessories to make it more you.  A statement necklace, a floppy hat or sunnies can really make a difference in creating a look that is more you.

5. Add the right shoe for you. I think gladiators and booties really compliment shift dresses.
