Is there a universally flattering dress? Many stylists recommend the “fit and flare” silhouette as the best all-around fashion fit. We do like that style- especially the fun of flared skirts- but we know many of our clients want a more modern wardrobe. That’s why we think the sheath should be your go-to dress. There are dozens of reasons to choose this iconic silhouette, but we’ll just give you three.
1. Sheath dresses are incredibly flattering to the female body. Sheaths create curves everywhere you want them and hides them where you don’t. They’re usually made in soft, body contouring fabric to prevent awkward bulges or bags. The straight cut also makes your legs appear miles longer.
2. Sheaths never go out of style. Other fashions come and go, but sheaths are always on trend. In fact, designers usually include at least one to give their collections a sense of completion. You can update favourite sheaths from past seasons with a new jacket or shoes.
3. Sheath dresses are an accessible way to try new trends. Have you been eying a new style but aren’t sure how to work it into your closet rotation? Check your favourite designer’s collection for that sheath we talked about earlier! This dress from Frank Lyman Design lets you play with monochrome graphics and the mixed animal print trend without the hassle of mixing separates.
