NEUTRAL SHIFT DRESS ~ Thread Ethic | Modest Fashion

Monday, July 23, 2012


This dress is the perfect little plain shift dress. We love how the cut speaks for itself, no frills needed here. This is also an outfit that can be taken into the fall really easily. Because the dress is so minimalist Desirae chose to spice it up with some neutral accessories - quilted chain bag, Ann Taylor leopard print scarf, Forever21 neutral platforms, and silver bracelets. The dress is from H&M last year and we love how it looks and feels so well made (that's something you sort of miss the more the price goes down in certain clothing stores).  A lot of people would stay away from a color so close to their skin tone, but we say don't! We think people like Nicole Kidman, Michelle Williams, Frieda Pinto or Halle Berry look especially beautiful in colors closest to their skin tone. Somehow it looks like the clothing is made especially for them or something. Try it!


  1. That's a great dress, reminds me of the 1960's. I love houses an clothes from that era.
    The discreet pockets, twisting seams and sleeves are so cool! You dressed it up perfectly.
