Fall shift.

The shift dress is a staple in any wardrobe. This small black and white pattern piece has longer sleeves which works well for cooler temps (as traditional shift dresses are often sleeveless). The shift dress makes it easy to dress up casually and comfortably without too much fuss. Accessorizing can make for a ton of different looks (belting a shift dress, can make a whole new silhouette). Mixing fabrics like cotton, leather and even textured leather help to bring interest into an outfit from head to toe. Paired here with a classic leather jacket, a textured black leather purse and some stacked heel booties – and I’m ready to go just about anywhere.
