Fashion Do: Structured Solid-Color Sheath Dresses
Every girl needs at least one solid-color fitted sheath dress in her closet! I probably have over ten in all different colors simply because they are so versatile. The great thing about these dresses is that you can wear them to work with basic accessories or dress them up for a night out (see above: Cameron Diaz, Diane Kruger, Hayden Panettiere, Olivia Wilde). If you are in the market for a structured sheath, I would recommend one that comes to your knees, or a little above your knees if you are petite like Hayden Panettiere. I particuarly like the one worn by Hayden above because of the tulip skirt, which is flattering for girls like myself with larger hips. Below are some options to choose from: Maggy London sheath dress for $158 available on www.macys.com; Shoshanna scoopneck sheath dress for $310 available on www.shopbop.com; Banana Republic sheath dress on sale for $99.99; Donna Morgan plaid sheath dress for $158 available on www.nordstrom.com (the plaid is so large that it acts as a solid); Ann Taylor Loft scoopneck sheath dress for $69.50; Black Halo "Francine" sheath dress on sale for $233.90; Maggy London ruffle trim ponte knit sheath dress for $98 available on www.nordstrom.com; Banana Republic wool-blend textured sheath dress for $152.
