Having a shift dress in your wardrobe is a must. It is one of the most versatile pieces you can own. Having a lazy day, fashion mishap, emergency outing etc., just throw on a shift dress and you are set!

I have quite a few shift dresses that I throw on because I am mostly always having one of those days I mentioned. One good thing is that a shift dress can be worn by anyone; Young, old, pregnant, working class, students. It is a very versatile piece that can be dressed up or down.

SOSO LAGOS

SOSO LAGOS is an urban Nigerian fashion brand that makes beautiful contemporary pieces. I am very particular about fabric quality because I like my clothes lasting a long time. SOSO LAGOS does not compromise on their fabrics and it’s pretty impressive. Also, the owner is a pleasant young lady who has one of the best customer services I have seen in this business. Although some of their prices can be slightly on the high side for those that are on a tight budget, their pieces are worth the price.

This light pink shift dress is one of their most affordable pieces & it retails for just N3500. I have seen shift dresses that are more expensive with less fabric quality so this is a gem you should own. I will be styling more of their pieces, I’m actually in love with them!

OUTFIT- SHIFT DRESS

In this post, I am using accessories from another Nigerian brand SUCROSE CRAFTS. It is a brand that specializes in handcrafted fashion accessories- bags, shoes, souvenirs etc. They use fabrics like Ankara, Denim, leather. Their pieces are always in pretty prints and are very well detailed, handcrafting at its best.

I made the first look a picnic style. I paired my shift dress with the 3 in 1 Ankara-detailed beach. A set of Bag (very roomy & easy to carry), Hat (who doesn’t love a fly hat?) and Casual slippers. A friend let me borrow his blanket even though I could not do a beach shoot as originally intended (this weather!). I settled for a picnic setting under a light rain but the photos came out well so I am pleased.  S/O to Seun for being a good sport & Happy belated birthday to him too!

The second style is a street style look. I really love this look. I paired the shift dress with sneakers and an Ankara fringe bucket bag. Actually, I also really love this bucket bag. It has not stopped working since the first day I carried it & it’s amazing how much room it has. Although, I have told them to work on a stronger strap as the current one is too light & I carry so much stuff around. You should totally get this one.
