Sheath dresses are unique for their narrow silhouette that fits close to the body. The hemline can stop anywhere between the mid-thigh and the mid-calf, the neckline can include anything from a boat neck to a V-neck. Since there is such a close fit, there's typically a slit up the back to make it easy to walk. Depending on the cut and fabric, sheath-style lace dresses are appropriate for both casual and formal events.
Finding a Sheath Dress for Your Shape
If you have an hourglass figure, look for a sheath dress with seams that enhance your waist to play up your proportions. If you have a straight figure, find a sheath dress with a built-in fitted torso to help create a silhouette. Sheath dresses with interesting details on the top help balance out full hips and thighs, and a dress with ruched material around the stomach can help visually flatten that area.
The right accessories will help you put together the perfect look, too! In the office, consider pairing a sheath black dress with a tailored blazer and a pair of pumps. Simple jewelry like a pendant necklace and small earrings will help complete this professional look. For a party or other special occasion, a pair of high heel sandals will look lovely with your cocktail dress. If the weather is cool, don't forget to grab an elegant shawl to wrap around your shoulders. Whatever look you're going for, you'll find the best sheath dresses at JCPenney!
