Shift dresses are clothing style that hangs loose on the body from the shoulders to the hem. They are usually short in length and are a great way to de-emphasize the waist.
They are free, fun and easy to wear. I love my bodycon dresses, but sometimes, you just don’t want anything so fitted on your body and shift dresses are a super alternative.
The shift dress is very simple as it almost has no detailing beyond the breast darts and side panels which hold the dress together. They sometimes have a high neckline and can have other features like an A-line skirt or an empire waist.
It is a versatile dress as you can be switched from casual to professional and from night to day look with the right accessories and shoes. It suits people with small bust and slim frame best, but that doesn’t mean bigger framed people are left out of the fun. These dresses allow for free movement and can downplay the feminine curves. But if you want to accentuate your waist, you can add a belt or a sash to cinch your waist.
