    Shift Gears with these Versatile Dresses from New York & Company

    Timeless, feminine and universally flattering, the shift dress first debuted in the 1920s and has been a versatile favorite ever since. This simple, short, above-the-knee style is a year-round favorite that can be as casual or as dressy as you choose. Loose at the waist, tighter around the hips, it's perfect for adding curves to women with straighter bodies or can easily be cinched with a belt to accent the waist on curvier figures. You'll love all our colors, patterns and styles, including:

    - Short and long-sleeve silhouettes. From short-sleeve, 3/4, and long-sleeve shift dresses - to no sleeves at all, you'll love the variety of looks available. You can even choose a flirty, cold-shoulder style, balloon or puff sleeves and many more. From colorful floral motifs that pop against a black background, to feminine touches like delicate lace detailing, choose a shift dress that fits your unique personality.

    - Flattering necklines. Whether you love scoop neck styles or V-shaped cutouts, you can choose a shift dress that's right for your body type. V-necks create vertical lines and a taller silhouette, elongating the neck and body. Scoop necks showcase your décolletage, also elongating the neck. They make narrow shoulders appear wider, while creating curves for women with athletic body types.

    - A fabric for every season. From sophisticated jacquard and cool, comfortable cotton, to airy chiffon, crochet, super-soft chambray and all the fabrics in between, our shift dresses offer a look and feel that'll keep you comfortably beautiful.

    - Sizes for every woman. We don't believe in one size fits all. Choose from extended-size styles that offer just the right look and fit - with many of our shift dresses available in size XXL, up to size 20. On the petite side? Our dresses make a big statement and are available in XXS, starting at size 00.
