I promise my upcoming posts will be about what to wear during Spring/Summer! But, I couldn't pass up featuring this amazing grey Herringbone Sheath dress.
I found this beauty at Banana Republic in the Petite section. FYI, the petite section in that store is one of my favourites! The selection and the price are always great! It ranges from professional work attire to cute weekend outfits. For people that are vertically challenged like me, it's always important to find clothes that fit like a glove.
OK! Back to the grey dress. I know some of you took one look and thought you couldn't pull it off because it's a form fitting dress. I beg to differ! The slit up the front will elongate your legs and the defined waist will actually make you look slimmer. If you are self conscious about your mid section, don't shy away from spanks. Yep, I went there!
The transition in seasons provides you with an opportunity to match dark and bright colors. Even if you are wearing a dress like this to the office, have fun with it! I paired it with my favourite fuchsia Audrey Brooke heals from DSW and the matching NYX lipstick.
Finally, If you're an hourglass, pear, or banana shape this is a great dress for you! If you are apple shaped, I would suggest highlighting your shoulders and/or legs with a shift dress. (I will do more blogs on different body types in the future.)
