10 Stellar Shift Dresses ...

Shift Dresses are incredibly hot this season, but more than that, they're cute, stylish, and fashionable for women of any size or shape. Shift dresses tend to be more comfortable than many other dresses, and in terms of what they cover, they're incredibly forgiving as well. Retro as they come, the short hems and generous waists represent the best of '60s and '70s fashion. I've picked out a ton of stellar shift dresses (and promptly fallen in love with each one), so I hope you like them, too!

Lace Sleeve Shift Dress

This is one of the prettiest shift dresses I found. I'm partial to black dresses anyway – so slimming! – but it's the sleeve I love most. I'm such a girl for lace, and the way they bell a little at the wrist is so sweet!


Parker Pleated Sleeve Print Dress

Speaking of sleeves, that's why I love this shift, too. The pleating makes them so full of voluptuous. The fall of the hem is quite retro as well, and something about that wood grain print is just so unique. This would just look gorgeous with a pair of knee high boots!


Spot Pleated Waist Shift Dress

Since polka dots are so popular this season, I would on the lookout for shift dresses that incorporated them. Normally, this many dots would be just a little too much, but the fact that they're all in different colors helps. This dress is sort of an optical illusion, and I love the fact that the base of the dress is navy. Navy gets passed over way too often!


Vince Camuto 2-Tone Shift Dress

Vince Camuto 2-Tone Shift Dress Price: $83.90 at shop.nordstrom.com
This dress is so cute! Not only does it come in red and black, but camel and black as well – with that choice, the shoulders are camel and the main body of the dress is black. I can't help it, though, I love the vibrancy of this choice. The short sleeves would allow this to look great with a cardigan.


See by Chloe Color-Black Shift Dress

See by Chloe Color-Black Shift Dress Price: $430.00 at net-a-porter.com
I know this is crazy expensive, but I love the color block so much. I know, I just know there has to be a knockoff or something somewhere that resembles this dress! This is total '60s in both design and palette, ideal for pairing with boots and some chunky jewelry. It would look mega cute with the right kind of tights, too!


Graduated Hem Shift Dress by Boutique

Graduated Hem Shift Dress by Boutique Price: $175.00 at us.topshop.com
I often wonder if I love shift dresses so much because I used to be wild for baby doll dresses, too. This reminds me so much of one, and it's so bright and vibrant, too! It's also pure silk, so if you have a special occasion, it would be perfect paired with a fancy cardigan.


Mauve Your Body Shift Dress

Mauve Your Body Shift Dress Price: $72.99 at modcloth.com
To be completely honest, I don't know if I'd quite call this mauve, but I don't even care. It's probably just the picture, but that doesn't change the beauty of the structure – all those accordion pleats and the sheer material. It's almost like a flapper's dream, with a shift mentality!


Fuschia 3D Flower Shift Dress

Fuschia 3D Flower Shift Dress Price: $100.00 at us.topshop.com
You just know I was hard on the watch for hot pink shift dresses, right? While this isn't quite hot pink, it's close enough for me. I love the sheer looking sleeves and, most of all, the flowers on the cuffs and the hem. This dress is dainty, feminine, and if the color's not your bag, just do a search because there's ton's of other shades!


Acne Shift Dress

Acne Shift Dress Price: $440.00 at barneys.com
Again, mega expensive, but this channels Breakfast at Tiffany's so much I couldn't resist it. What woman wouldn't feel like Audrey Hepburn in this dress? In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if she had several like it – I know Holly Golightly rocked this style like nobody's business!


Plain Drape Front Dress

Plain Drape Front Dress Price: $95.00 at us.topshop.com
Believe it or not, you can find plenty of shift dresses with lots of structure. This is one of them, and I love it! Not only is the draping gorgeous, but the nude shade is just right for one of fall's prevailing trends! You'd just have to make sure to wear it while it's still a little warm out!

Shift dresses are often the perfect choice where you don't feel comfortable with something more fitted. My recent love affair with shift dresses started earlier in the year when Target started playing this commercial featuring an adorable, pink and black polka dotted dress. I was never able to find just that dress, but I've found tons of others I absolutely adore! What do you think of shift dresses? If they're not your cup of tea, let me know what kind of dresses you do love!
