Shift Dresses

(UPDATED: July 26, 2017)

It is a 1960s revival as shift dresses have become very trendy lately. These ladylike dresses are fun and charming. Most shift dresses are usually mid-length and with a very feminine shape. I honestly don't know how best to explain these dresses for this post, but I will definitely try. My main goal here is just to explain and discuss shift dresses. So welcome to "StyleSpace by JBM" and another blog post of mine!

Shift Dresses


Get to know the shift dress:

As a re-emerging trend of the 1960s, shift dresses are the new stylish dresses to wear. These are mostly form-fitting dresses that mostly hit just above the knees. Their fun and flattering style make them every bit as stylish in this day and age as they were back then. Shift dresses are all about ladylike charm in flattering and stylish mid-length dresses.

The footwear to go best with these dresses would be any number of pumps, classy sandals, chic boots, and footwear like those. Jackets, blazers, and vests are great compliments to a shift dress. These are some classy dresses to wear. So therefore, I would stay away from anything real casual with shift dresses. So if it were up to me, I'd leave behind the combat boots, the Converses, even anything denim.


If you want some insight on shift dresses better than what I've provided, here are some links for you to take a look at to learn more about shift dresses:

Love shift dresses. Very comfortable and flattering because they skim but body but aren't super fitted. Thanks for including one of my looks! :-)
