There is no more elegant shape than a well-made sheath dress. I have thought this before, but it was never so profoundly drummed into my head as when I saw the incredibly inappropriate butt-shots of Princess Letizia and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy during a recent state visit. It is wrong that this was the photo published around the world from this state visit – and yet it is an eye-catching and beautiful photo. Now what makes it so is not just that they are lovely women, but that they are both wearing sheath dresses that really accentuate their form. And so, to show you what I mean, I chose another incredible sheath dress, this one from Victoria V.
The key to the incredible elegance of the sheath is that it is form-fitting, but not tight. It skims lightly over the shape, not clinging to it. There is a defined waist, but defined through darts, not defined by color or belts or any cinching of the waist – nothing to detract from the curves that the sheath is accentuating. This VictoriaV dress, Abigail, has a lovely print that begins above the waist – deliberately not breaking the flow. The shoes are from Maitreya – and are called Grace.
The button ornamentation at the neckline of the sheat add visual interest. I decided to go with round beaded jewelry in order to echo that embellishment. The jewelry is all from Twinkleberry – a delightful store with imaginative and delicate jewelry. The hair is from Find Ash – a men’s style – but don’t let gender labels keep you from cool hair like this.
The skin is Redbud from the new April2 collection of Curio skins -it is fresh, clean and sping-like and looks lovely with the hair and the dress.
