Forgive me if it seems superficial, but in my humble, fashion-forward opinion, the simple, silk sheath has much to offer today’s eco-focused woman.
The sheath dress has been around for decades – the first were worn as undergarments, followed by flappers flaunting them despite the skin-baring scandals. By the 50s, the sheath was an accepted and often worn outfit, just shorter and more form-fitting.
Today we wear them to cocktail parties and afternoon teas; belted or loose; with cap sleeves or none at all. Not to mention, the sheath is probably the most flattering style on most figures.
A slightly sexier version of the sheath, the One-Shoulder Pleated Dress by Madison Marcus in plum is belted and would flatter a fuller-figure by emphasizing the waist and shoulders. It’s available on sale for $222 at CUSP, in sizes XS, M and L.
The sheath dress is the simple springtime fashion solution.
