1. Shift Dress
Shift dresses have certainly come back in style again. This type of dress tends to not have any elastic waist and sits loosely on your body. They can come in many different colours and patterns so you can find a shift dress to suit no matter the occasion. Shift dresses will almost always be short in length. Originally, shift dresses where sleeveless, however as fashion changed, you now see shift dresses with short or even long sleeves.

Wrap dresses can come in any colour or pattern and they can be short or long in length and include long sleeves or even no sleeves.

The length is usually half way between the knee and ankles. Midi dresses can be tight or loose fitting, perfect for day or night.
