Nothing will help you shake off this cold snap like this Neon Floral Shift Dress!
KC and the Sunshine Band can shake, shake, shake it. Taylor Swift can shake it off, shake it off, and by golly so can you Minxes! This is the dress you don and instantly experience a surge of self confidence.
This dress walks an inspiring line between beautiful and cool. The large cabbage roses are rendered in a very traditional and nostalgic style. The fabric is slightly raised, giving the floral pattern a nice depth and texture. The sweetness of the print is balanced by the neon color palette for a dress that will definitely turn heads.
Short History of the Short Shift
There is nothing quite as simply cool as the shift dress. It heralds back to the 1960’s and then the 1920’s before that. These were two eras where popular culture stood up on the tables and broke with tradition. Perhaps we can pin this brazen and invigorated spirit on the shift dress itself! Its slim fit doesn’t infringe on your waist, is perfect for dancing everything from the Twist, the Roger-Rabbit, or whatever move moves you!
Please note the detail of the two pockets set into the waistline. The perfect twin pockets for nonchalantly hooking your thumbs!
The Frye Company, Keeping You on the Go
Unencumbered movement was at the forefront of our thoughts while styling this look. Even if you don’t go out dancing in this riotous dress, you will be built for speed wearing these cool sneakers from the Frye company.
Frye, at this point, is almost synonymous with boots, but they have been making these cute sneakers for a while now and they are not only stylish but incredibly comfortable as well. The low profile sneaker is perfect for the Minx on the go!
Melanie High Top Sneakers by Frye
After pairing our feisty neon shift with this black leather high top sneaker, we added this clever Frye backpack for good measure. As you dash from one blood warming activity to the next, in and out of the freezing temperatures, you can shake all you want while this fashionable carryall ensures that your personal items stay securely stowed away.

Don’t Forget Your Accessory
Accessories are trending towards an elegant and streamlined simplicity this spring. This knotted necklace adds an edgy yet classic layer to a wide variety of outfits. The woven wire design comes in a few different colors. We chose the blue to pull out one of the darker tones within the Neon Floral print. Because the neon of the floral print says so much, so loudly, and so perfectly our low profile sneakers, simple backpack, and subdued necklace support this fun look without overpowering it.
However, how brilliant would this look be with a nod towards the golden era of country or rockabilly? Think big hair and big heels, just a thought!
Ok Minxes, get shakin’!
