Like every girl (well almost), I have always faced this issue of that perfect outfit for post work parties or get-together. Somehow, I have never really liked the idea of carrying a change to work, just because I have to go out post work. Isn’t it a clumsy thing to do? And the looks that you get for being over excited, is just another thing!
So when Karpasa offered me a collaboration for their cotton contemporary shift dresses, I jumped. Because, I finally found that perfect outfit which would work well in office and post that.
While doing the shoot, I figured some really cool things about this multi-tasking dress.
Since shift dresses are anti fit, the comfort they offer is phenomenal. When you have to spend the whole day at work and then head to a party, what you need is pure comfort and freedom of movement. These dresses offer you just that. Wear them and walk around like a boss.
2. Colors and print:
A shift dress draws that perfect line between work and casual wear. So it is easy to experiment with colors and prints. Floral or geometric; pink or green; nothing will look too much or too gaudy on a shift dress. These dresses have little shape or detail, so to make this type of dress look more interesting and alive, pick one in a bright color or bold pattern.
The headache of styling a shift dress is the least. I styled these shift dresses with jackets/blazer and jhumkas. Blazers are the perfect alibi for taking these dresses to a meeting. You can wear your shift dress with a belt, scarf, statement necklace. Just remember, the idea of a shift dress is to keep it simple. That is their biggest advantage. So choose just one thing to customize your dress.
Isn’t it wonderful, when you do not have to worry about which shoes to wear with a dress? I am sure it is. When it comes to a shift dress, you can wear whatever shoes you are comfortable with. I am a very flats person. So my obvious choice is to wear flats. However boots and wedges make a perfect style statement too.
5. One size fits all:
Well, not literally. But one of the coolest things about a shift dress is, that is flattering to a variety of body shapes. So plus size or zero figures, everyone can look great in
a shift dress.
When you want a dress which gives you some room for breathing but still looks good, go for a shift dress. Since they are easy to accessorize and comfortable to wear, a shift dress is a classic style that will enhance any woman’s wardrobe.
