The shift dresses are one of those easy to wear dresses the fashionistas love to throw on.
There’s no fuss about the shift dress but most times people make it look frumpy and this is because it is a short dress that lacks detailed shaping.
The features of the shift dress defers from designer to designer, some have sleeves while others don’t and many are in form of an A-line skirts.
The shift dress most times can be referred to as plain featuring an empire waistline sometimes or just a yoked out structure.
Asides from the breast darts, some shift dress skim the curves rather than cling to them and thus because of the way it is cut, it ends up drawing attention away from the tummy making it one of the most flattering dresses for all body types.
Although the free cut makes a perfect dress for all body types the lack of specific detailing in the cuts can affect the way you wear it so you have to take note so you wouldn’t end up looking like a flumped up sofa.
The Ankara fabric on the other hand gives a shift dress character, rather than using plain fabrics like chiffon, polyester etc. The Ankara which is more of a designers favourite because of its motif, takes a shift dress from bland to glam.
For most people having the Ankara fabric alone is just not enough and because of this feeling tailors have taken the shift dress to another level, so you could either mix the prints or embellish the shift dress.
Embellishments, patterned and embroidery designs makes the shift dress a bit more pronounced and beautiful.
