Fashionista NOW: Breezy Shift Dresses For Summer Fashion Inspiration

Tired of form-hugging dresses and want to wear a relaxed fit alternative that is stylish in the sweltering heat? Shift your attention to shift dresses.

There cannot be a more weather-appropriate dress style to wear in hot and humid Malaysia other than the figure-skimming shift dress.

With the high heat and humidity wreaking havoc on your makeup and hair, the less skin-to-fabric contact is much appreciated and without resorting to going au naturel and be thrown in an asylum of the mental sort, a lightweight shift dress with a relaxed 60s silhouette allows you to cool off in style.

Shift dresses are part of the retro chic dress trend that has a special place in the hearts of the dress obsessed. The undefined columnar construction is thoroughly pleasing to all shapes and forms that I surprise myself by admitting that it is a dress style I see myself wearing even though I wear dresses like never.

When Kate Middleton was recently spotted in yet another red dress rendered in the shift style, within minutes, the exact belted red shift dress was sold out across the internet, E! Online reports. Fact or fiction, this remains a mystery. And while we may not all be blessed with the princess’ very deep pockets, we can inevitably find variations of the shift dress at diverse price points to cater to our individual style and budget preferences.
