My Summer fashion motto: comfort is key! When it comes to dressing for 40+ degree days, I am all about comfortable, easy style. Enter the shift dress. The universally flattering style that is one of Summer’s comfiest options.. second only to the t-shirt dress, that is! As you can see, I have already picked up two shift dresses this season (I couldn’t resist the $20 price tag!). I went for simple black and white colours (of course!) but this shift dress comes in around seven different colours if brighter colours are your thing!

Style your shift dress on it’s own or over a tee. Team it with sneakers or some ankle boots. Add a few simple accessories, a cute bag and you are done. Easy, quick and street style approved!

I have found plenty of shift dress options below, from tighter styles that can be dressed up to loose, comfy everyday styles. Plus plenty of fun prints and colours to choose from (I think I need a pink ginhgam one next?!)

    I am so totally into that look with the leather jacket. It is perfect together. You are right, it is now not just a casual office wear anymore but something you can wear in the streets.
