A sheath dress is one that fits close to the body and is relatively free of embellishments. It’s a favourite with celebrities as it highlights their figure and comes in a variety of colours and designs. Here are some tips to how to show off your sheath dress in style
The best thing about the sheath dress is that it’s never out of fashion. You can wear it to a variety of occasions and accessorise as per the mood of the event. A sheath dress in a solid colour can be worn to work as well.
If you have a plain sheath dress, think about accessorising it in a creative manner. Office-goers can style it with a pair of classic pumps, a ladylike handbag and maybe a silk scarf. If you are headed off to the club, team it with a statement piece of jewellery, a shimmering clutch or a pair of strappy heels.
Focus on prints
If you want to go easy on accessories, try experimenting with prints. In fact, bold prints are a rage right now. Geometric or Aztec designs are in vogue along with botanic prints. Floral prints are also a nice option but best worn for day events.
A few layers can help you totally transform your look. A sleeveless sheath dress is a good choice for summers, but you can also wear it in winters with a jacket or a stole. Nice collared shirts can look nice on a plain sheath dress.
The general design of a sheath dress is simple column-like. However, you can alter it by adding a skinny waist belt or a shapely jacket. A cinch in the waist is another idea. A sheath dress looks good on athletic as well as curvaceous women. If you are on the plumper side, stay away from clingy fabrics.
Since sheath dresses are quite demure, you might want to team them up with pumps or ballet flats. Strappy heels or ankle boots can add an extra bit of style. Wearing colourful heels with a printed sheath dress is also a good idea.
Sheath dresses in colours like charcoal, silver, gold and bronze are great for parties. You can don them with glitzy heels and nude makeup or with bright lips. A bit of body shimmer, smoky eyes and a hip accessory, and you’re ready to rock.
