What would we do without shift dresses? The fit of this clothing is truly versatile, it fits both skinny and plus size girl, who, however, are not going to refuse beautiful clothes and wrap themselves in shapeless outfits.
The cut is the main fashion benefit of shift dresses, which often don’t have a pronounced waistline and have a straight or A-line silhouette, which is hiding the central part of the body. Most shift dresses are short or knee length, because the long maxi length may wash out all the charm of these cut, making it baggy and unflattering for the figure. For cocktail dresses the hard dense fabric is a kind of good-old tradition. Paired with a shift cut, it enables fashion designers to create fancy architectural shapes of an attire to turn heads at the events.
Casual shift dresses are perfect for everyday wear, if they are made of natural fabrics, soft and pleasant for skin. You will not feel tied down, and due to the wide range of designs for this kind of dresses, you won’t have to limit yourself, choosing exactly what you need for your common style and your figure. If your dress is not close-fitting and has a fairly baggy cut, there may be a need to pick a trend-perfect leather belt or a contrasting sash to define the waist line.
We have called the shift dresses versatile and suitable for almost all women, but you need to follow certain fashion rules, concerning the cut of the attire and accessories. It all depends on your height and figure. If you are not tall, avoid baggy shift dresses and always wear heel or platform footwear. If you have a plus size figure, never opt for Roman tunics with short wide sleeves above the elbow – this design will make you fuller.
