Here's how to wear your Shift dress right:

Belt on:

It always looks cool to dress up a Shift dress. Depending on the colour, wear a belt in contrast colour. For instance, if your dress is black, go for golden, beige, fuchsia or green.

Accessorise it up:

If your dress is plain, glam it up with some quirky jewellery. Say, a multi-string neckpiece that falls till your chest would look great. A loop or danglers too would look chic.


Make sure that you flaunt the right pair of heels with a Shift dress. Stilettos or cuff-length gladiators would make for a great choice. If your dress is a mix and match of different colours, tone down to a single coloured heel.

Choice of jacket:

Go for a dramatic shimmer jacket, if it’s an evening party, but dress down your accessories. But if you are opting for a black dress, a colourful jacket should be your choice.


A silk scarf, printed or embroidered would give a glamorous feel. Avoid chunky jewellery around the neck while sporting a scarf.
