Over the years, the term "chemical dress" becomes a bit unclear. By definition, it is a dress with a straight cut that allows the dress to be loosely fitting, especially at the waist. Some interpret it as another way of calling the "shift dress". I would argue that a chemical dress is often more fit than a shift dress. But of course the definition is never as important as the beautiful result. To help you expand your outfit game, I've put together some of the best clothing ideas for you. Let's dive in right now.
