Since the days of Twiggy, the shift dress has remained a dress style that's been on trend. This season, try it out for that upcoming party or even on your days off. Don't be put off by the shape of the shift, it can be easily styled to fit you and your look.
• Remember the option of belting! Adding a belt over your shift can fix the feeling of shapelessness, while adding a little something extra. If your dress is one colour, opt for a belt adorned with studs, or something decorative. It can be another way to add something other than jewellery. If your dress is patterned, or already embellished try a leather belt or a simpler option.
• Layer! The shift is a great dress to layer with. Have some fun adding a contrasting jacket or whatever you're loving at the moment. This will break up the shape and add a dimension to your outfit.
• Tights always work, but a great (and on trend) alternative is the knee sock, or longer sock. With the hem of the shift almost always ending just above the knee it's a perfect match.
