Styling a Shift Dress

Happy Friday, friends! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July holiday. I know we did! Today I'm talking all about a very basic, but wonderful, staple: the shift dress. How much more classic can this item get!? I found this cute number at Old Navy of all places, and have been wearing the heck out of it ever since.

I've styled mine with everything from a long sweater, to a jean jacket, and even worn all alone as a simple black dress. I love how a shift dress like this one can be worn in so many ways and truly dressed up or down depending on your style and/or occasion. I've paired mine here with my favorite dressy heels for a look that could go from work place to date night in a flash!

I have to say, I was a little skeptical of how much I could love this trend, but I'm a believer now. The best part? You can find these everywhere right now, so no matter your style or budget, there's a basic shift dress out there for you!

I can't wait to see how I'll be able to transition this piece into Fall with chunkier sweaters and tall boots! Do you have a shift dress? How do you wear yours!? I'm dying to know!
