A dress can be the prettiest of garments. This beautiful printed shift dress is the perfect example. 

Not much else is needed (I think I would have also skipped the pearls) and you just look stunningly beautiful. Perfect with the pretty pink shoes.

She also brought the perfect short cardigan with this dress to keep her warm when it gets cooler.

Love this outfit. Especially the pink cardi 🙂

What a simple and chic dress, I love it.

6 April Farley

Yes I would wear a printed shift dress. It is cute!

7 Rose

The women is beautiful, her face lights up with happiness. Proof if you need it, that it is not always the dress but the person in the dress that makes for beauty.
To wear this dress needs a good figure. To me it looks lovely because of the wearer.

I actually like the pearls…I think it adds a sense of youngness because I see young models wearing necklaces with prints!!

9 Aileen Wrennall

I think it’s lovely too and I also think the other outfit is beautiful.

They both look absolutely fabulous. I think it is mother and daughter (the noses seems similar). Very very chic and still not at a distance. Grand ladies.

It’s so funny (and this happens all week long) that I will shoot the same women, even on the same day, without remembering (as happened here). Yet there is some ineffeable quality or sense of style that has attracted me to that woman over and over without me even being able to define it.

As to the jewelry, it is very unusual at Fashion Week for a woman not to wear multiple pieces to complete an outfit.

Love the printed shift dress and would definitely wear one if I could find one that fit correctly. The waist usually hits me at the wrong spot, and being pear shaped makes it tricky as well. Hence I usually stick to separates.

13 Pauline

I Agree, Mother And Daughter. They Both Look So Beautiful.

14 Lorraine

I love this dress and would wear it in a heartbeat. In fact I have fully embraced shift dresses both plain and patterned. I agree with Rita that fit is important and not all are a good fit but I have found that Coast dresses are perfect for my shape. I also adjust some by taking in the darts a bit more for a better fit around the waist.

I might wear a printed shift dress. As long as the pattern looks OK over breasts and butt. My belly would need to be completely flat so nothing sticks put. I would need to wear a bolero type jacket or sweater to cover upper arms. I do have a couple of shift dresses for summer but mine are plain and basic.
