Day 26: Sheath dress {Write 31 Days}

The Write 31 Days is coming to an end soon! Only five more days! So, this will be the last week of fashion-focused posts.31 days of fall fashion ideas!

At the beginning of this series, I featured a swing dress and all the ways you could style it. So I thought I’d bring it full circle and end this series by talking about a sheath dress and how it is another “blank canvas” piece. A sheath dress is one piece that every woman should have because it is easily adaptable. It’s perfect for work, for lunch out with friends, for church, for a funeral, for a dressy occasion.

Sheath dresses come in different styles. The classic one is the straight sheath which is designed to fit close to the body (think of a sword or knife’s sheath). You can define the waist by adding a belt.

If you don’t have much of a waist, like me, then a dress with darts adds some definition and the illusion of a waist. talbots sleeveless sheath

Or a dress with some ruching will also hide some tummy and give you a more defined waist. ruched sheath

Better yet, go for a sheath with an a-line skirt. That is what I will be styling. It has a fitted bodice and then the skirt flares out just a bit giving me a more girly figure. Plus it’s more forgiving on the hips and thighs.
