LAST SLIDE

Keep It Simple: 15 Chic and Easy-to-Wear Shift Dresses

That universally flattering and forgiving garment, the shift dress, makes most women think of Twiggy and Jackie O, who wore graphic printed ones by Mary Quant and Lilly Pulitzer. This era inspired Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, and Moschino this spring, as designers turned out modern interpretations of those iconic patterned dresses. While checkered and striped shifts are fun to wear, a monochromatic take on the silhouette is like wearing a fancier version of your favorite oversized T-shirt — but with tons more polish. Try pairing J.Crew's cheery pink mini with stacked wedges as a true nod to the sixties or add a slim heel to Mango's sleek white v-neck dress for a minimalist look. Few things are easier than throwing a dress on and heading out for the day, so click ahead to see fifteen ways to simplify your mornings.
