Shirttail Shiftdress

Shirttail Shiftdress is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress! You can dress it up with some heels and pearls, or dress it down with some brogues/wingtips. I wore it despite my 5 month pregnant belly, so the fit on the back was a little weird (poofed up a bit?), but it was still super comfortable! I imagine it'll be even cuter when I'm less "curvy". The fit is great, the collar is super cute,... it's already one of my favorite dresses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable look & style I purchased in black. You really do not see the look of the dress in the picture. The raw edging and collar is what really makes the dress unique. I purchased a medium because it does run a little small in size. I absolutely love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice material and great fit This dress is made of thin wetsuit-like material that gives it a nice sheen and a dress-up, dress-down style. I have it in the lipstick red color which is the perfect bright red to wear from the holidays through the summer. I love this dress and wear it with everything from flats to heels and boots. It's a wardrobe staple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from favorite dress I am in love with this dress. It's perfect in every way- comfortable fabric, cute collar, and with a fun shirttail hem. It has an easy, laidback feel to it. I bought it in black and debating if I should get a second in red.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, resilient "little black dress" Love this. Ordered and arrived in time for my company holiday party. It runs a little large #I'm usually a medium and the small fits perfectly#, but the fabric is a bit thicker than I'd expected--super comfortable and not too drafty, which is my least favorite quality in a dress. Wore with oxfords, as styled on the site, and it looked rad. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looks a lot better on than online I just went into the store today to put together a holiday outfit. While I don't know if I want to do black this year, the cut of the outfit- the shift dress and the modernized sixties collar made this dress appealing to me. It looks a lot more gallery (especially if you wear it with pointy toe flats or sleek heels) vs hobo chic (the way they have it styled here online). Trust me, it looks a lot better in real life but can look a bit roomy in the torso/belly area, giving it a more relaxed look. If you have long limbs it will accentuate your arms and legs, and if you have a belly it will definitely hide it. With some wine/burgundy lipstick and hair pulled back it's an outfit. I'm happy with the style of the dress and how comfortable it is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality but runs large I bought the lipstick color in size small. I would love to change it for an extra small, then it would be perfect. If anyone wanted the lipstick color in small let me know, I would gladly exchange it with you for extra small!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fab dress, too small and short for office I loved everything about this dress except the fit. The red color was striking and it's very classic without being boring. I'm 5'6" and was hoping it would be long enough that I could wear it to court, but the proportions on it were it just wrong. Bought a similar style dress in the same size at the same time and it fit perfectly. Sadly returning this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic LBD I really wanted this dress to wear through all seasons and I think it will fit the job. I was a bit surprised about the fabric. I feel like it looks a bit on the cheap side and is much heavier and stretchier than I expected. Also, the arm hole seams have sort of a "raw" finish to them. Overall I'm happy with the dress, the lines are great, but I'm not in love with it like I thought I would be.
