I love this dress! It has a very understated romantic vibe to it. It's so easy to wear and the perfect date dress for a walk in the park or enjoying a cosy dinner for two. The material is silky smooth, the cut is classic and the colours are perfectly complimented in creamy ivory and taupe; the icing on the cake?...Charming little rose patterns scattered all over the dress, that brought a smile to my face. I wouldn't say this dress is the "typical" classic sheath dress. Since fashion is forever evolving, and with every new season we welcome a surge of creativity and new ideas that add special touches to some of our favourite time-honoured classic pieces.
The history of sheath dresses can be traced back to the 1950s when two silhouettes dominated fashion for women. The "New Look," popularized by Christian Dior, emphasized a small waist with a full skirt. The other was the sheath. It also emphasised the waist but with the skirt that followed the contours of the female body. According to the Fashion-era, both silhouettes highlighted a woman's shape. The sheath dress, unlike the "New Look" did have a longer lifespan, it remained popular in the 1960s and has since withstood many changes in trends.
To "dress" in utter simplicity, nothing beats a sheath dress. The flattering clean lines will create a streamlined silhouette and prevent the dress from overwhelming your figure. If you have never tried the sheath dress, why not experiment one with a classic cut and perhaps an added charm that you just could not resist! =)
