The Perfect Spring Sheath

Back when I was working with private clients, every season there were a few go-to pieces that would end up in most dressing rooms. This dress, for sure, would be one of those pieces. It’s a great staple you can dress up for work or weekend events with a can’t-beat price.

This time of year, weekends are crazy. Just looking at our family calendar for April and May, every Saturday and a few Sundays have at least one, sometimes two events. I feel like we are going to blow through the Spring and Summer, which would usually bum me out, but my brother is getting married in early September and I am out of my mind excited about it. Before that, our next big event is my daughter’s First Communion.  That’s what got me looking for a simple, affordable, and versatile dress. If you have any kind of shower, graduation or similar event in the coming weeks this dress might be for you.

The Perfect Spring Sheath

Sheath, $90  |  Necklace, $50  |  Clutch, $70  |  Heel, $99

I ordered it in “serene” (above), but it’s available in eight other colors.  The sheath silhouette is perfect for layering under a blazer (take a look at our picks for classic spring blazers here). For the office or after work, black or navy would be perfect. But, don’t be afraid to pick up a bold color. I have a similar dress in bright pink that I wore to all kinds of events last summer.

For this look I wanted it to be super simple and elegant. I love a nude (to me) sandal, and these by Vince Camuto are different yet still wearable with their 3″ heel.  For the bag, I’m going matchy-matchy.  This box style clutch in patent leather is quintessential Spring. Finally, you can skip a necklace if you prefer but I wanted to show it as an option. If you can pull off a bold statement, I L.O.V.E this necklace. The shape will mimic the neckline of the dress and act almost like a collar.  The mix of color adds a really lovely depth to the outfit.

  1. Hmm wondering if this would work for me ?
    My grandsons first communion is coming up?
    It’s very pretty!
    Also like the pink !
    But then I need a Different necklace LOL

  2. Just a quick question? I was always under the impression that when you wear a higher neckline you want to wear a long necklace to elongate the look and the line of the dress. Does that still hold true? But I do think the statement necklace worn as a collar look is VERY pretty! Thank you.

    1. Hey Sherri! The long necklace is a great go-to and absolutely elongates the line of your body. But it’s not a hard set rule. The necklace-as-collar- look will bring the eye up to the face and works best when used with a dress as simple as the one featured. Hope that helps!
