With my body type, apparently the inverted triangle types, it is hard to find quality shift dresses, that have room in the top and still fit my petite bottom, without hanging too loose. One that fits my flat butt, is tight on the top and vice-versa. Finding that perfect shift dress always felt like a dress unicorn. But the recent game-changing collection at Banana Republic, has me hooked. It has become my store-du jour for all the shopping fancies. It was during one of these visits, that my eye met this dress(sold out online). A shift dress that agreeably shifted my dressing-game....for good for sure! This one happens to be in my favorite color, is of the perfect length, the ruffled bottom makes it all the more fun and the sexy- strappy back is a bonus.
I am wearing this in a size 6. I tried both the 4 and 6: the 4 was a tighter fit. But with all due of avoiding any future broken zipper situation, I bought the 6.
A shift dress is very forgiving in all respect and works for most body types. It seamlessly hides all body flaws and accentuates only the best. Wear this one by itself, with a pair of adorable flats and a side sling bag for a day out. For a more put together look, some sexy wedges, a sweep of your favorite bright lip and an embellished bag, would suffice.
