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.
