Simply Chic Sheaths

The sheath dress is the happy medium between a bandage dress and a trapeze or balloon-style dress. It’s available in every length, size and sleeve type imaginable. This classic silhouette skims the body and highlights your curves.

Although it’s said that this silhouette looks best on an hourglass figure, remember that all sheaths are not equal. Wear what works and looks good on you! You may even want to add a belt to create the illusion of a defined waist and curves. If you’re looking to add some dimension to the sheath, a peplum trim (as seen above on Leighton Meester), will do the trick!

As you’ve probably noticed, first lady Michelle Obama loves sheath dresses!
