The Classic Sheath

When it comes to professional work wear, my go-to piece is always the sheath dress. I especially like a silhouette that is belted (to show of a small waist) with an open neckline.

One of my favorite necklines is the square neckline, which I feel allows you to show off your curves in more subtle way. That's why I jumped to buy this flattering tweed sheath dress from Kay Unger, even though it's a little big on me. (I wanted to wear it today when I had meeting after meeting after meeting; usually I would get the dress altered before wearing it.)

Outfit Details

Dress: Kay Unger Blue Tweed Belted Square-Neck Sheath Dress

The dress, my first from the Kay Unger brand, is still available at Lord & Taylor. Honestly, this brand tends to skew older (more "mother of the bridge), but this dress works for all age groups.

Shoes: BCGeneration Peep Toe Pumps

There are flecks of gold in the tweed pattern (this picture doesn't quite do it justice), so I would normally wear my gold Casadei pumps with this dress. Unfortunately, I left them at my mom and dad's house over the weekend. After celebrating our faux Thanksgiving, I changed into jeans and a tee to watch the final Hunger Games movie with my sister and good friend, Elizabeth. I can't believe the Hunger Games trilogy is finally over!
