Shift-Work

This spring we are loving neutral and soft shades that are easy on the eye and easy to wear as well.  Living in the DC area we lead pretty busy lifestyles; from going to work, straight to a dinner meeting/happy hour and sometimes we don’t get home until 10pm and we are ready to crash! On long days like these we opt to wear something chic yet comfortable; may we introduce you to the almighty shift dress.

Shift dresses are perfect to wear during the warmer weather and can easily go from day to night with a quick change of shoes and accessories. Shift dresses have been popular since the 60’s and still are to this day due to their loose fitting and forgiving silhouettes.  Be sure to find one with the right length as some shifts can be unflattering and overwhelming if too long but easily fixed with a simple hem.

We are loving this shift from Zara because of its soft and subtle leather details on the capped sleeves.  We paired it with nude strappy sandals, gold accessories and a beige trench to wear over the look when heading into work in the morning.  Tell us about your go-to work day looks by commenting below!

    What a classic look! I agree that a khaki trench is such a must for spring!
