realign

Here is my best explanation:

'shift' is the definition.

'material that's grand in fashionable' is the wordplay.
'material' becomes 'real' ('real' is associated in meaning with 'material').
'that's grand' becomes 'g' ('G' can be a synonym of 'grand').
'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'fashionable' becomes 'in' ('in' can be similar in meaning to 'fashionable').
'g' placed into 'in' is 'ign'.
'real'+'ign'='REALIGN'
