Sheath Dresses

Not to be confused with the straight cut shift, the sheath dress is in a category all its own, known for its figure-hugging fit and sleeveless, cocktail-length cut.  The sheath is quite possibly the most versatile dress out there, as it can be worn to work with a simple jacket and taken directly out to cocktails thereafter. Stock your closet this fall with some of the best sheath dresses for the weekend, the workday, and a night on the town.
