The shift dress first came into popularity after being showcased by the always-stunning Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 movie, ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s.’ Since then, it’s gone through several transformations to become a versatile staple in any woman’s closet. You can now find shift dresses in nearly any color combination and material to suit both casual and formal events. Pairing this dress with the right jacket and shoes really takes your look to the next level. Despite this cut’s high level of sophistication, you don’t have to spend a fortune to find the perfect dress. Here are four places to find your next gorgeous shift dress for under $50.
You can pick through at least 100 styles and colors on LuLus‘ site to find the perfect shift cut for your body type and personality. Materials that make the bottom of the shift dress flow outward are really popular right now. Instead of the stiff cut of yesteryear, these dresses hit mid-thigh and billow outwards to soften the look. Many of the dresses come in several different color combinations, so you can load up on several of the same cut. All dresses you buy at LuLus ship back for free if you need to return the order. If you spend more than $50, you won’t have to pay for shipping to your home or business either.
Fun embellishments, like lace trim, stiff collars and sexy cutouts, make the dresses at ModCloth irresistible. You can find long, cap and strap sleeves on many of the dresses from this site. Some of the shift dresses include flattering cuts and ties to make the outfit a little more form fitting. Pattern styles range from stripes and flowers to fun views of the landscape. Some of the dresses are even marked down more than 50% to less than $30. As with LuLus, returns are always free and orders over $50 earn free shipping.
Fun designers, like Candies and Daisy Fuentes, sell their shift dresses through Kohl’s website. You’ll find at least a dozen dresses marked down nearly 80% to just over $20 apiece. At that price, you can obtain several dresses to wear at every party throughout the holiday season. The flower patterns and geometric color blocks will flatter your figure by accentuating your curves. Since many of the cuts do not have sleeves, you might want to pick up a sweater or jacket to go with your dress. In addition to earning Kohl’s cash, you’ll receive free shipping on orders over $75.
You’ll love the wide range of designers who market shift dresses through Macy’s website. Some of the high-end designers include Alfani, Jessica Simpson and Nine West, but that doesn’t mean the dresses will break the bank. The dresses run from $20 to $50 after applying the sale’s discount. If you spend $99 on your order, Macy’s will ship your dress to your home for free.
