While I normally like a more defined waist, there's just something about shift dresses that I'm drawn to. I started wearing the silhouette more at around age 17 (heavily inspired by Blake Lively's Serena Van Der Woodsen wardrobe at the time, which had some excellent shift dresses) and haven't stopped since. While this dress does have a seam at the waist and offers more swing at the bottom than a typical shift dress might, the overall silhouette and ease reminds me of a classic shift.
