VIDEO: 2-minute Mornings - 3 Dress Shapes for Quick, Effortless Style


There’s nothing quicker or easier than reaching into your closet and throwing on a dress – especially when you have a million and one other things to do in the morning! We love the ease of single-piece dressing, and luckily, St. Vital Centre is filled with fun new shapes and figure-flattering styles for every taste, budget, and body.

To prove just how easy it can be to throw on a dress and be out-the-door ready, we picked out three of the freshest shapes on our radar this season and slipped them on (and off again) in the fun video above. Here’s a little more about why we love each spring style:

The structured shirtdress
Stop stressing about what to wear to work this summer, because we found a ringer. A polished shirtdress in a fun print? Yes please! Call it the business suit’s more casual, playful cousin. You get all the credit for looking boardroom-ready, without any of the extra fuss. Throw on a crossbody bag and cute sandals and off you go!

The easy swing dress
We swear this loose shape comes pretty darn close to feeling like you’re wearing nothing at all! On summer’s most scorching days, we’ll be reaching for this light, a-line shape. The key to avoiding maternity-wear confusion? Dainty straps, a fitted bustline, and the short, flirty length. A denim shirt is the perfect topper to ward off chilly evenings and wrap around the waist for a little extra definition. A leather backpack will fit all of our farmer’s market finds.

The fitted t-shirt dress
Feeling a little sexy? Show off your shape with a fitted yet super comfy, stretchy midi dress. This modern look can get away with hugging every curve thanks to a higher neckline, slightly longer sleeves, and eye-catching front detail. We’ll be hitting the patio in this little number with a floppy boho hat, patterned clutch, and fun wedges.

So don’t just take our word for it – press play and see for yourself how easy mornings can be!
