[Enter a sheath dress]
|(Petite Friendly) Dress: Calvin Klein|
Necklace: Amrita Singh 'White Jade' Maylen
Belt: Hermès 'Gold' with GHW
Shoes: Hermès 'Gold' Oran Sandals
I am not crazy about this particular blue on me but I got this sheath dress for a great deal (on beyond the rack) and since I could wear it without alterations I kept it. As you will see, I am a firm promoter of sheath dresses having a place in every professional woman's wardrobe.
I kept my shoes in my nylon Prada purse and wore the Prada ballet flats to work.
Solid sheath dresses are more versatile since you can change up how you accessorize them (think scarves vs. necklaces or skinny belts vs. wide belts, etc.). Both solid and patterned sheaths can be paired with cardigans and blazers in different colors or long sleeved blouses or turtlenecks with opaque stockings during winter months. A fitted one may even be layered with a skirt over it for a color blocking look.
Here you can see there is detailing on the side of this dress. When you have a dress with such minor detailing, do not be afraid to accessorize over it.
Keep in mind that over-accessorizing can make you look messy or like you are trying too hard. I used a belt to break up the blue color and wore the necklace to bring the line of vision up.
