Style Files Vol 16 | The Shift Dress + Dress Favorites Under $100

Aug 16, 2016

This little shift dress is the kind of dress every girl needs in her closet.  It comes in 13 different colors and is under $100.  I am thinking I need to add a few more colors to my closet I love my green one so much.  I am wearing the Jade color but I also really love the black, cobalt, and purple.   It is the perfect little dress for any occasion.  You could wear this for church, work, date night- really anything! 

Outfit Details:

Dress | Clutch | Shoes | Sunglasses

Sizing wise I found the dress ran TTS.  I am wearing a size small and I am 5’9.  Do you spy my little photo shoot helper in the background?  

The shoes are a recent purchase and so comfortable!  They go with everything too, they are a great neutral color.  They are not crazy expensive either, right under $100.

and the clutch- This “Leo” style clutch is one of my favorites by Rebecca Minkoff.  I have 2 different colors.   It is a great size, not too big and not too small and of course I love the embroidery detail on this version.  The plain version is a little cheaper and under $100.

A few other dress options,  the majority of these are well under $100 but a few are right over $100.

Dresses Under $100

I just ordered this dress.  I adore the style and it will be perfect for Fall.  It also comes in black.   I went with the wine color though because I feel like I have so much black in my closet already.

Dee Dee Dress

This is the perfect dress for now and into Fall.  I love the side detail.  Also in 3 other color options here.

Geo Dress

I love the simple white detail on this Chambray dress.

Off Shoulder Dress

I am obsessed with this dress, I am always a sucker for embroidery.  I love the idea of this paired with booties for a fun boho look this Fall or now with gladiator sandals. 

Grecian Dress

I so wish I had a wedding or fun event to wear this dress to.  It is under $100 and comes in 4 color options.  I love the hot pink though, such a gorgeous dress and great price point.

High Low Dress

You can’t go wrong with a plain shift dress.  You could easily dress this up or down.  

Shift Dress

This is made out of cotton,  so super comfortable for daily wear but the pleats dress it up a bit.

Pleated Dress

This green is one of my favorite colors!  I love the tassel detail too.

Woven Dress

This is my favorite style dress.   A tunic style dress is just so effortlessly easy.

Ikat Tunic

Fringe Jersey Dress

I really like the fringe detail on this one.

Crepe Shift Dress

You could wear this dress a million ways.  So many possibilities.  The navy is perfect for Fall! 

Long Sleeve Shirt Dress

This also comes in Charcoal gray.  A great basic dress.
