Twiggy in an iconic 60s shift dress
The shift dress has become a timeless silhouette. A shift dress is a simple above the knee dress. This dress hangs loose from the shoulders with very little or no definition in the waist, cut straight or with a narrow A-line, thus making it flattering for most body types. Just add a belt to denote an hour glass silhouette. This dress can be adapted to wear in any season. The simplicity of the shift dress makes it a very versatile piece, lending itself to a variety of accessories, embellishments and fabrics. The shift dress is a universally flattering and forgiving garment. Every women should own a shift dress…..it\’s so simple and chic.

I never knew the exact definition of a Shift Dress. Thanks for explaining. I will look to add some to my wardrobe as they are universally flattering.
