The sheath dress is one of the most common dresses in fashion today. Because it can be designed and worn on many occasions, what a sheath dress is can be a little confusing. Here’s what it really is and when you can wear them.
A sheath dress (pronounced as “sheeth”), is a tight dress that hugs your waist and often has a hemline that comes up until the mid-thigh or the mid-calf depending on the length of the dress. The main characteristic of this dress is the fitted waist.
For Cocktail Parties
Sheath dresses are often worn to cocktail parties because they’re dressy enough but they’re not too formal. You can pair anything with a sheath dress like a beautiful clutch bag and killer heels.
Sheath dresses can be best worn for work when paired with a blazer and pumps. Since these dresses come in different lengths, it’s always respectable to have the dress go down until the mid-calf. Any shorter than this can make it look inappropriate.
For Casual Days
Just because it always looks so dressy doesn’t mean you can wear it casually. You can dress down with a sheath dress with the help of a denim jacket or casual sneakers.
