Pocket Shift Dress - Sale


Size Guide

It's just like the original Shift dress, but with a tiny update- pockets! The Pocket Shift Dress is a wardrobe hero that will wipe out your morning nothing-to-wear woes while being practical and functional. With an effortlessly flattering shape and ultra-soft fabric, the shift dress is your new wardrobe hero!

We love wearing this on its own as much as we love layering it with classic pieces and fun accessories alike. Try it with a crisp collared shirt or slim blue jeans and a turtleneck in cooler weather, or simply throw on a straw hat and a colorful belt to jazz it up in the summertime! The high neckline, t-shirt sleeves, and two classic colorways make this dress sophisticated and chic without even trying.

    I would buy one in every colour if I could! This dress is so versatile it's not funny. Thank you Hanna for your incredible pieces!

    I have to admit that I was nervous to buy a shift dress online. I'm glad I took the chance. It fits perfectly. I have a large bust but the dress skims everything so nicely - it's not too boxy and is very flattering. The material feels like I will be able to rock it in all seasons. I already have a plan to wear it to a big event this summer! Thank you for this beautiful piece. I made a commitment to move away from fast fashion and to consume as ethically as possible and reduce my consumption. This dress helps me hit all of those goals. Thank you!

     Sotela's approach to sizing is a little different. Instead of using the conventional small, medium and large, we've decided to change our wording because why not! We want to keep things simple and offer the most out of your clothing. 




    Here's a step by step of how to choose your Sotela size:

    1. Measure yourself – This one is very important if you shop online, which as of now, I think we all are! Check out our tutorial to measure yourself because we use low hip measurements with our clothing. 
    2. Once you have your measurements, go to the product page for the garment you are interested in and click on the “Sizing and fit” tab or “Garment Measurements for Petite, etc.”
    3. The garment measurements on the product page will tell you the actual width and length of the garment. For example: the Ryan Trouser measures 26″ with an unstretched waistband and 42″ in the hip for the size 1.
    4. Based on your measurements, choose a size that is about 2″ more than your largest measurement. For example: I have a 39″ hip. The size 1 hip measures 42″ which gives me about 3″ of ease. The size 0 measures 40″ in the hip making it too small for me.
    5. Make sure to use your largest measurement when choosing a size, especially if you are looking at a jumpsuit or dress. If your bust is larger than your hip, I’d recommend choosing a size based on your bust because that ensures it will give sufficient ease for the rest of your body.
    6. Lastly, if you are still unsure, email us hello (at) with your measurements! We are happy to recommend a size.
