3 Ways To Wear: Printed Shift

There's nothing as easy as a perfect-fitting shift dress that you can throw on & instantly feel pulled-together.  I was so excited when I found this one because the print is so pretty that it almost doesn't need any accessories, plus it's very similar to much more expensive styles I've seen this season (but for less than $30!).  I decided to feature three different ways to wear it for work, weekend & evening to show the amazing versatility of this piece.  It's no question that I will be getting alot of use out of it in the months to come - I'd love to hear which look is your favorite in the comments below! 

What I'm wearing:
c/o Old Navy dress (on sale here - also in tall), c/o The Impeccable Pig blazer (similar here or here), ALDO pumps (on sale here), Banana Republic bag (early Mother's Day gift from my husband; here), c/o T+J Designs cuffs (similar here or here) 

What I'm wearing:
c/o Old Navy dress (on sale here - also in tall), TinselTown Denim Couture jacket (via T.J. Maxx; similar here or here), Forever 21 scarf (similar), Guess sandals (similar here or here), Pulicati tote (via TJ Maxx; similar), Tasha bangles (via TJ Maxx; similar), Ray-Ban wayfarers (similar) 

What I'm wearing:
c/o Old Navy dress (on sale here - also in tall), Sanctuary Clothing jacket (via Marshall's; similar here or here), BCBGMAXAZRIA heels (similar here or here), Expressions NYC clutch (similar here or here), c/o Fabulous on a Dime necklace (similar here or here), Bracelets: The Limited (similar) & c/o Capwell+Co (here)

Check out how I wore my favorite Old Navy skinnies in last month's feature here.

Love this dress on you! I saw it in stores and tried it on, but I was so bummed it didn't fit. I've had a problem finding a good shift dress for my petite frame. I love all 3 looks but the denim jacket one is my fave. I'm partial to a dress and denim jacket combo though. XO!

Great dress! There's a similar style at J. Crew for something obscene like $500! I think the work look is my fav but all are lovely!

Love all three looks and the metamorphosis the dress goes through from business to casual to dressy..

andrea said...

I LOVE all four looks! Such a pretty pattern on the dress...I never would have thought a busy pattern could be so versatile!



Jeans and a Teacup said...

I love that BR bag! Such a great color! And that shift dress is so fun! Great pattern!

Melissa Myers said...

Love the weekend look since I wouldn't be able to wear something like that to work. Dresses and a manufacturing environment don't mix too well. Way to make it so versatile!

Ashleigh said...

I love the weekend look! I automatically think sheaths are for work, so dressing it down was of interest to me. Super, super cute!

For All Things Lovely said...

Love how you styled the dress in every way! Perfection!xo.


Sarah marinkovich said...

The reviews on ON said the arms were super tight. Did you have thst problem as well? Its a great print!

Kimberly said...

Hi Sarah,

I read those reviews as well and didn't have that problem at all! I bought the Small and I don't consider myself to have tiny arms...in fact, I have pretty broad shoulders...and it wasn't an issue for me. :)

Hope that helps,

Ashley said...

Love all of these looks! I really love the print...


Jackie said...

That is a gorgeous dress! Ya gotta love Old Navy..

xo Jackie

Lady of Style said...

All 3 looks are gorgeous!
I like this dress so much that I ordered it in blue and red right away!
Shipping costs + tax to Germany are expensive but since the dresses are a bargain I was ready to spend that.
Can't wait to receive the delivery.

Carrie Hurd said...

The weekend look is my favorite, but I love how each of the jackets pull out different colors from the dress. So versatile! Might have to pick it up myself!

Kristina said...

That dress is so pretty! The weekend look is definitely my favorite.

Isn't it amazing what a jacket can do to change up a look? Love all three, but especially the weekend look. Will have to make a trip to Old Navy soon!

Dee said...

These are 3 GREAT looks! I wouldn't have guess from Old Navy's website. Thanks for sharing!


Amy Shaughnessy said...

I love all 3 of these! I love the pink heels and blue blazer. Great combination!

Christina Heflin said...

I love this dress and all the different way you styled it are gorgeous! Unfortunately I tried this one on in the store and it fit me horribly. So sad because it's gorgeous!


Kristin @ ChicAllWeek said...

I just bought this dress last week and was on the fence about it, but now I'm definitely keeping it! Thanks for showing how versatile it is! :)

Now if it could only be a bit warmer than 38 degrees in Chicago...


Lexi said...

I love that dress on you! And I couldn't believe how many adorable dresses Old Navy had recently. I managed to only buy two styles, but now I think I want to add this one to the bunch!

These are really some amazing combinations, well done!


Kayla Gilbert said...

I love this dress so much! You look FAB in all of the looks.. as always! : )


Jessica (Bows and Sequins) said...

Beyond obsessed with all three of these looks! I'm trying to be good with shopping so I was THRILLED when I saw this dress is from Old Navy!! Buying it ASAP :)

Tia Spaulding-Team Fabulicious said...

I must say that I love the “weekend” look the most. This look is perfect for a weekend full of errand running or better yet, shopping!!!



Alyson said...

SUCH a fan of this! I nearly purchased this dress last week in store (but they didn't have that discount that was online) because loving a great patterned dress with this sleeve length... it's comfortable, versatile and looks totally chic, ie just how you styled it! I love the date and work best, and so loving those date night heels (and yay for your gorgeous new early mother's day gift!).

Styleclouds said...

I absolutely love the work edition! Wonderful look! xo, Christina


Malinda Falcicchio said...

Adorable dress, old navy is great! I find it hard to find dresses that aren't too long as I'm only 5 feet tall so i usually have to order the petite version online. I'm digging all of the looks but I adore the work look with the pink shoes


sarahsreallife said...

I can't pick! Don't make me! :) Love them all. But I'm almost swayed by that mint satchel.

My favorite would have to be the date night look. SO fun with the pink jacket! When I first saw this post and found out it was an ON dress, I was like, "WHAT?!" It looks so lux!

valeriebrooke said...

The Weekend Look is by far my favorite! Love this dress!

Lauren said...

I love these kinds of posts, how you show us how to wear something more than 1 way. Love all of these looks. That shift dress is fabulous. Old Navy sometimes has some really awesome stuff! xo

Ivana said...

Now this is what I call perfect styling! I love the print on that dress (too bad that shift cut look so bad on my curvy figure :(
I love all 3 styles, but I think the work one is my favorite! You look fantastic!

SoJez said...

I love all 3 looks although my favorite is the casual. I was thrilled to see that this dress isn't sleeveless (I don't feel comfortable in sleeveless anything) and tried to find one for myself. But, alas, no luck finding my size. Figures that I wouldn't be able to find the one dress I've liked in a really, REALLY long time. Just my luck :-(

Chelsea said...

I love all three ways you styled this fab dress! The mint bag, denim jacket and pink blazer are great pieces.

Such a pretty print! I love the second look best, can't wait for temperatures warm enough to wear outfits like that all the time!

I have totally had my eye on that dress and after your three for three perfect stylings, I may just have to get it.
