One of my favorite styles of clothing, worn often by Jackie O, is the timeless shift dress. I have so many in my closet and it's usually the cut of dress that I gravitate towards when looking for a new wardrobe staple.
Lilly Pulitzer is definitely a brand who makes the absolute most perfect shift dresses. Most women's brands make this popular cut of a dress, but there are few who do it superbly. When you think of Lilly, you think of bright, fun, summery prints, right? Of course! But, I think what some people don't realize is how many non-print options they offer. Since I live in a city, not on a beach or in a resort town, I sometimes feel a bit 'much' all dolled up in a print, but something like a classic navy shift is perfect for work or a dinner date. So if you find yourself straying from Lilly because you are not a fan of prints, I totally urge you to try out their neutral shifts because the fit is everything!
For sizing info, I pretty much stick with a 2 in dresses. They're cut true to size, but I find that you should err on the smaller side rather than the larger (if you are between sizes) just because the smaller looks much less frumpy and is more slimming/figure flattering.
I've rounded up some more of my Lilly favorites in the widget above. I've said this before but I just love their newest print, Get Trunky (and how cute is this caftan that shares my name?!)!
