LOOKBOOK: TRAVELLING IN SHIFT
A Shift Dress are the most comfortable and versatile dress I have ever found. I could look casual, dressed up or even formal in a shift dress just by putting on a couple of different accessories and putting on a different pair of shoes.
Here you see me in my favourite springtime floral shift dress, the material is a thicker foamy material so it doesn’t show any of my fatty bumps but still give lets me show off my figure as I like to wear something that is more fitting to my body, even if it is a shift dress, making it look more like a sheath dress (For those confused: A shift & sheath dress is almost the same except that a sheath dress is more body hugging compared to a shift dress.)
The cost of this look:
Invest in something that can protect your eyes better when you are travelling, UV is a dangerous thing since we would mostly be spending our days outdoor walking around.
I bought mine from Vision Space, SS2, Petaling Jaya as they do give excellent after sales service (free cleaning and simple repairing) and they seem much more professional than other shops I have visited.
Depending on the brand, a simple shift dress can even go up to RM200, but you can always have a few different materials for different occasions, just need to make sure the material is not too flimsy as to be unflattering to your body and not too heavy as to be uncomfortable to wear. I personally like bright colored ones for vacations as it doesn’t absorb the heat from the sun as easily and looks totally awesome in photographs.
