Comment: I would like a few recommendations for casual shift dresses. Somehow, when I go shopping for shift dresses, I always end up with something completely unsuitable for daytime. Please help! Thanks.
Answer: Look for something in a light cotton or a jersey knit, or for winter maybe a nice stiff wool or a jacquard. Try to stay away from pieces that are really silky and slinky and in dark shades — that always tends to look more like evening wear. If you do want something in a silk, try a fun print in a few eye-popping colors.
Here are a few examples we have pulled together for you:
