As spring is upon us it is time to take a long hard look at our closets, with the weather change comes fabric changes and shorter hem lines. They can easily be dressed up or down and are a smart look for outdoor events. Choose your poison with the print, color and style and accessorize to make it your own. Finish your look with high boots, pumps and glamorous shades. ( Quick tip: Be sure to keep a jacket or cardigan in the car for day to night events.)
Patterns can be simple to abstract, this shift by Free People gives a spirited flare, add a rustic belt or compliment the look with bangles.
For a more vibrant feel, go for louder patterns with more eye catching colors. Pair with a strappy sandal to dress down or a sky high pump to turn up the glam.
For a super jazzy feel, go for metallics and sequins. Shorter hems and higher heels will give a teasing silhouette.
For a simpler but classy look, opt for mid length sleeves and cooler tones. Lace works well as an overlay to add a unique effect.
When shopping shift dresses, make sure you are choosing dresses that fit YourStyle. Look for lightweight fabrics like crisp cottons and bleached denims. Accessorize with shades, hobo bags, cute clutches and bangles. For you fashion risk takers, trade in those baby doll shoes for converse or Vans. Don’t be afraid to throw on a tennis shoe for a relaxed feel.
