Collaboration: Chic a Shift dress with Mide

Hi Go-getters,

Welcome back to my blog.

How else can a shift dress look chick? You probably already know shift dresses are casual looking and non figure hugging. So when styling them, it’s your job to make them flattery for your body shape. Or let’s assume you don’t know a shift dress. I’d explain. Shift dresses are short length, simple straight line, loose fit dresses that  hang from the shoulders and held together by side panels. They work well on most body types and can serve the purpose of a top/blouse.

Shift dresses are mostly worn casually because of how easy and roomy they are. So how do you wear a shift dress to look completely chic? I and Mide my look alike blogger friend styled these simple ankara prints shift dresses we hope you’d love.


For that chic vibe, you ought to use shoes or let’s say accessories that can make a difference to your overall outfit. Look how Mide belted her straight line cold shoulder shift cinching her waist which gave her the fit suitable for her choice of shoes. Her choker is also made from the same ankara fabric which already is enough statement providing no relevance for bold jewelry. Check her post here for more.



I wanted to layer mine for a work appropriate outfit but I guess the obvious length changed my mind so I decided to style it alone.(you’d probably should get yours longer length for the office)

Most people prefer to wear low heels or flats on shift dresses in order not to make them look even shorter and why this is true, there is something about heels that effortlessly elevates a simple shift into something elegant. I styled with my favorite heels strap sandals and tote which sure added chic to my look. Don’t you think?



Shift dresses are ideal for everyday looks (a must have wardrobe staple for every girl) and they are very versatile too. Just maybe I’d do another post on different ways to style a shift dress…….would you want to see? Let me know in the comments and tell me which look is your favorite?

Always live your most desired and deserved life. See you next post.

much ❤️

    This is beautiful and you both look alike truly. I love shift dresses because how how easy I get to wear them and how comfortable it is for me to go about my daily work wearing them.

    And you both style it well, I am having a hard time selecting my fav. Both are unique in their own way and I’d have yours a bit longer if I am getting one. Because aside the fact that I would love to wear with heels, I would likely want to wear to work one day.
