|The Dress: Club Monaco silk shift dress (bought it on sale last year for $139) // necklace: Forever 21|
Look 1: Wear it with a Blazer
Whether you want to wear it with a boyfriend blazer or something more structured, pairing your shift dress with a blazer is a great way to add some dimension and break up a single pattern.

Look 2: Wear it with a Pencil Skirt
If your office is as conservative as mine, you can't really get away with wearing a short shift to work. Why not pair it with a pencil skirt? Maybe if your crazy, add some faux fur to your faux blouse!

Look 3: Wear it with a Sweater
A shift dress can be a great alternative to a mini skirt for when you want to go out for a drink with friends or even if your office is a bit more casual with their dress code. Keep the sweater fitted for a prim and proper look or baggier for a some edge.

To get even more outfits out your dress, why not do a sweater and a blazer, or a blazer and a skirt? or maybe even a longer shift dress underneath? The shift dress is your layering best friend!! Maybe even your real life best friend.
