hi by Hey Divas,
As a lover of Ankara, I often opt for simple and creative styles when sewing casual and one of the simplest style you can get from this great fabric is the shift dress (you would find at least 5 in my wardrobe). This is my one Ankara wardrobe staple that is easy to slip without much stress.
But just incase you are a bit confused about the shift dress or perhaps you dont know it, Shift dresses are clothing style that hangs loose on the body from the shoulders to the hem. They are usually short or long in length and are a great way to de-emphasize the waist. They are free, fun and easy to wear especially for those times you just don’t want anything so fitted on your body and shift dresses are a super alternative.
The shift dress is very simple as it almost has no detailing beyond the breast darts and side panels which hold the dress together. They sometimes have a high neckline and can have other features like an A-line skirt or an empire waist. It is a versatile dress as you can be switched from casual to professional and from night to day look with the right accessories and shoes. It suits people with small bust and slim frame best, but that doesn’t mean bigger framed people are left out of the fun. These dresses allow for free movement and can downplay the feminine curves. But if you want to accentuate your waist, you can add a belt or a sash to cinch your waist.
The shift dresses are a timeless style with clean lines and a simple silhouette, which flatters different body types and makes you look classy. Here are some Ankara shirt shift dresses for inspiration…
