This week's Get the Look featurette takes a look at geometric prints and shift style dresses. Shift dresses gained popularity in the 1960s due to celebrities such as Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy donning the mod look. Noted for the comfort and ability to be dressed up or down, shift dresses are making a comeback.

Tips: Pair with some sweater tights and riding boots for an overtly chic look!
