Y'all know I don't really chase trends, but I'm LOVING this shift dress era we're living in. One of my style rules is that if you're going to wear a shorter dress, the less form fitting the better (at least if you're going for a classier look). Shift dresses are perfect for those stifling days of summer that are about to be upon us, have a hint of an homage to the 70s, and are flirty and feminine without being over the top.
I've recently discovered Tobi and they have plenty of shift dresses (in multiple styles) that you can sift through HERE. Bonus points: Tobi has new inventory daily and have TONS of sales, so it's easy to snag something you want! I'm in the Boho Babe Embroidery Shift dress in white and navy and I'm honest to goodness in love. It's such a classic and timeless look and is SUPER comfortable to wear. CLICK HERE to check it out on Tobi's site, as well as other colors it comes in (I may have to go back and snag it in the rose and blue color as well!!) For measure, I'm wearing an XS and it's a perfect fit.
I wanted to keep the styling of this super simple because the dress really does stand alone. So I wore my navy Nine West boots from this winter (sold out but you can similar styles HERE) and my beloved polka dot Kate Spade bag from YEARS back to give it a subtle pop of mixing of prints while still coloring inside the lines. (Search other fun Kate Spade styles HERE or search Poshmark for this or similar polka dot bags! What do YOU think of shift dresses??
