I’ve always love the sixties shift dresses look, but mainly on other people. They are so chic, stylish and timeless, but most importantly it seems so effortless to just throw on a narrow shape dress and still look stylish.

The columnar silhouette was characterized to flatter most body types…but I find most shift dresses are narrow as hell and never really fit me correctly. Too loose on top and too tight around my hips. The design of shift dresses are not supposed to hug or “cinch” the body but I find the hemline always cinches the beejesus out of my thighs. I thought maybe I’m just having a Chip Wilson (lululemon) moment and am buying workout clothes shift dresses 2 sizes too small, until I got this OASAP dress in the mail. It’s perfectly shifted and fits like a glove without being too tight or too boxy. I also love the added white collar and faux cuffs for a nice contrast to the bright cobalt blue.

Now I know the shift dress that best flatters my body type is one with a slight triangle shape as it flares out at the hemline.

One of the best things about living in California is of course the weather. During the colder months when everyone is layered in layers, we can still get away with just a sweater. It’s as if we never really have to bundle up all the way. Which is good because I love being able to wear a light jacket or sweater to keep me warm and cozy but still wear flirty skirts and open toe heels when I want to. :)

Whenever I wear maxi skirts I feel so effortlessly feminine. I love the ethereal vibe of these long skirts, especially the ones that are lightweight and has an easy, breezy flow. However, what I love most are the endless styling options! Maxi skirts can be paired with crop tops (my favorite of course), chambrays, knits, blouses, tees, leather/denim jackets or blazers, you name it! Best of all, sandals, boots and flats all looks great with maxis. What can I say, it’s just a universal item that goes well with everything. :)

Below are a few of my past maxi looks. It’s obviously I love maxis. Which one is your favorite?
