Ask Shopbop: Shift Dresses for Spring


Shed the layers with a spring-ready Giambattista Valli tunic dress.

We’re in the starting stages of spring, meaning summer isn’t far away. And while this is exciting—especially after this long winter—shedding those cold-weather layers can be a little daunting. My suggestion? Slip into a simple shift dress.

Fashion icons from Audrey to Jackie looked to this universally flattering style for both casual and dressy springtime occasions. The frame-skimming silhouette is chic, yet ultra-forgiving to a figure that’s been covered up for five months. Traditionally sleeveless and cut above the knee, shifts ease you into mini season and prepare you for bare arms. But for those of you who need a bit more time, look to styles with short sleeves and sheer paneling. You’ll still get the fresh feel without the exposure. (A little self-tanner never hurts either!)
