We are so close and yet so far from beating the current cold weather and wearing our new spring collections, so when we saw this picture of former Hills star Audrina Patridge looking totally divine in a long sleeve shift dress we had a fashion light bulb moment! Shift dresses are just so practical for this time of year, taking you effortlessly from day to night and are huge news this season, many seen on the SS'13 catwalks taking inspiration from the 60's. The definition of a shift dress in case you didn't know is basically a dress that 'doesn't hug the body or clinch the waist' which roughly translated means they will suit absolutely everyone!

After eight fabulous years, we and over one million viewers sadly said farewell to Desperate Housewives on Sunday evening. And while we were sorry to see them go, it was the last few episodes that made us think the characters we will probably miss the most are Lynette and Gaby played by Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria. At the wrap party, the pair looked lovely in matching long-sleeve shift dresses, very Kate Middleton style and in on-trend pink and red. A great idea for special occasion dressing just in case we endure a slightly cooler summer - shop their long-sleeve look below.
This week at very.co.uk we are in love with the yellow brocade shift dress by Love Label, £45.
From the front the dress boasts a swingin’ 60’s silhouette, whilst the low neckline at the back, complete with tiny buttons, give this dress a unique design. The bright pop of yellow will definitely solve those January blues and set you of in the right direction for Spring.
This lovely little dress is a nod towards recent fads such as Pan Am; for the ultimate polished 60’s style wear this dress with a beehive (there’s no shame!) and some serious liquid eyeliner.
