Have a dress silhouette that’s your go-to, can’t-get-enough-of look? Us, too. But even if you absolutely love a certain shape, you still want to shake it up occasionally. And that’s why we have created Dress Refresh—fresh, new ways of wearing your tried and true favorite dress silhouettes. We started with the belted A-line dress, and now we’ve got our eye on refreshing the long-sleeved printed shift. A great pattern gives this easy shape a certain amount of snap, but with the right layering, it really shines. So, get inspired with our styling tips, and then shop the look in our Long Sleeve Printed Shift collection.
As the weather cools down and bare legs are too chilly to bear, slip on a pair of leather (or leather-like) leggings below your shift instead of tights. Not only will the leggings be warmer than regular tights, but they also add a high fashion edge to the look. Bonus: booties or pumps in the same color add up to a lengthening effect for your legs.
If the neckline of your shift is a few inches below your collarbone, add a t-shirt below the dress to add an unexpected contract. And as much as we love our dependable black blazer, a thin coat can double as an indoor layering piece with considerable cool factor.
It might sound counter-intuitive, but layering a longer piece like this chiffon-bottom vest over your shift really works. Not only does it give you a different hemline to work with accessory-wise, but it offers an on-trend proportion play. Try it with chunky heels or a thigh-high boot for a runway-ready look.
