The Shift Dress

Maxine Button Back Dress in Linen

The shift dress is such a classic style and so perfect for warm weather dressing. It has been a staple in the wardrobe of well dressed women for decades.

I have found one I love. Simply chic and available in a rainbow of colors, it can be dressed up or down with aplomb. It's available in Petite, Classic, and Tall in expanded sizes. And it's under $100.

This one is easy and effortlessly flattering, thanks to the high neckline, mini length and button details down the back. Plus, it's crafted from everyone's favorite fabric of the season: lightweight 100 percent linen.

I love the back buttons -

  1. I think I may need a shift dress now... However, I'm writing because I just came across an article on "Palm Royale", which is a new series on Apple + set in the 1960's in Palm Beach with a Slim Aarons vibe. I KNEW you would be interested. The article is in House Beautiful. Cheers

    1. I already posted on it and am watching it. Thanks!

  2. Unfortunately, this dress is excluded from the promotion.

    1. When I did the post this morning it was included. I even put it in my cart and it showed the reduced price. Then they changed it at some point.

  3. Reminds me of the madras plaid shifts from the Sport Shop in Market Square, with a great pair of ballet flats! Always the perfect little dress.

    1. Most of my clothes came from there including all my prom dresses and my collection of Pappagallo flats. I loved that store!
