Shift Dresses are great when it comes to showing off your figure without showing off every little part of it. Having a semi straight look can be flattering and hide areas that we may not bee so crazy about. The same can be said about the shift style top, pictured below from Ann Taylor. This look can still give you some shape without calling out your muffin top or making you feel like a stuffed sausage. In fact, the little extra room in this style dress and top can have a thinning effect!
One thing to note is that since these tops are a little loose, it is important to balance the look with a black skinny jean or a more tailored pant.
