Our selection of shift dresses features some of the most innovative and stylish sustainable brands.

The great thing about the shift dress is that its simple shape allows it to be adapted for so many different occasions. Dressed up with heels for a party or down with tennis shoes for a summer holiday, the shift dress is such an easy piece of clothing to wear. Here are some of our favourite ways to wear one.
For casual shift dresses
Check out Seasalt Cornwall. Their cool laid back styles are perfect for lazy weekends with fun prints on organic cotton and linen and a little seaside inspiration, it is no wonder these beautiful shift dresses are so popular. For the cooler weather or strolls along the seafront, layer them up with leggings, boots and a light weight cardigan.
A contemporary style
Uber cool (and sustainable brand) Skunkfunk does the traditional shift dress with a twist. Look out for their flattering and unusual asymmetrical styles, bright pops of colour and unique take on the smart casual dress for work.
For smart work wear
Komodo is the go to brand for anyone looking for smart, stylish and sustainable work wear. Their structured shift dresses in high quality fabrics look great with a tailored jacket or cardigan and shoe boots.
The party shift dress
For a party, you can’t go wrong with a classic little black dress accessorised with a great pair of heels and some statement jewellery. You might be lucky enough to find a fantastic vintage black dress. For summer parties a printed shift is also a great option. Bold, bright African prints by Fair + True are big news at the moment or for a daytime party or wedding a floral print shift is a classic pieces that will keep coming back into fashion year after year.
One of the things that we really love about a shift dress is the many different ways that it can be accessorised for different looks. We love adding interest to the neckline with a vintage scarf or statement necklace, definition to the waist with a belt or just bit of extra warmth with a fab pair of tights and knitted shrug.
