Shift

A shift dress, or chemise, is a classic, unfitted style of dress that has simple, straight lines and universal appeal.

The classic shift dress is a straight-lined, basic dress that is not fitted to the body and can also be known as a chemise. It is generally cut down from the shoulders and can feature bust darts and slight (slight) flair at the hips or a tie-waist to ensure that it won't look shapeless or baggy.
