Fashion Forward: The Shift Dress

Do you want a dress that you can throw on and run out the door looking great? Meet fashion’s most effortless shape — the shift dress. A shift dress is a short, loose-fitting silhouette that hangs from the shoulders and features straight lines that don’t cinch the waist or hug the curves.

The origins of the style can be traced back to the flapper fashions of the 1920s, which moved away from the corset in favor of looser shapes, exposed arms and legs and very little waist definition. Showing up in fashion through the decades, this silhouette is most closely identified with the “mod” look of the 1960s when it was worn by cultural icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy. 

Today, this versatile dress has become a wardrobe hero and is suitable for just about any environment, whether it’s at the office or on the town.

Nautical Know-How: Spring 2013 Trends

Adrift after a drab winter? Warm up with our favorite nautical looks. Don’t reserve seafaring style for the beach (although, it’s perfect for resort) — maritime pieces work as a crisp pick-me-up any day of the week.

White and navy are nautical stalwarts — pop the pairing with red, orange or yellow. You can also expand the palette with other ocean-inspired hues like seafoam green and cobalt.

Shop the Looks: Calvin Klein Crewneck Tie-Waist Dress & Swarovski “Holly” Starfish-Pendant Double-Chain Necklace, Antonio Melani Tiago Belted Peplum Dress, Lauren Ralph Lauren Textured Leather Belt & MICHAEL Michael Kors Ionna Patent Pumps, Lauren Ralph Lauren Cotton-Blend Button JacketMICHAEL Michael Kors Dolman-Sleeve Stripe Top

Nautical stripes are bold and classic. We love clean navy/white pieces, but unexpected bursts of neon or sparkle set a fresh course. Another subtle update: trade navy bands for black.

Shop the Looks: Cremieux Lina Stripe Knit Dress, IQ Paris Striped Hi-Low DressMICHAEL Michael Kors Button-Front Blazer

Decked out with buckle accents and chain prints,  the MICHAEL Michael Kors resort line takes a refined approach to nautical. Whether you are packing for a getaway or headed to the office, you’ll find a striking piece to sail your wardrobe into the next season.
