Turn a sheath dress into a showstopper by wearing the right accessories. A one-sleeve sheath dress shows off one bare shoulder. It may be fitted or straight with a hem at the knee or slightly above. Whether you're going to a formal event or out on a date, accessories can make this outfit look like a million bucks. Pick a fabulous accessory or two to transform a pretty dress into the "it" dress.
Combine a one-sleeve silk sheath dress with a statement necklace and you've got a match made in fashion heaven. Be the talk of the occasion with a gorgeous conversation piece. To avoid jewelry overload, wear small earrings or none at all. If you like bling, try a necklace adorned with faux gemstones for mega sparkle. Necklaces with faux feathers or flowers are eye-catching choices too. No matter what you choose, this is one accessory that's bound to be the main attraction.
Color Block Pumps
Let your feet stand out with a blast of colors. A color block pump has bold hues like cobalt blue, lemon and hot pink all in one shoe. These shoes will get plenty of attention when paired with a black sheath. If you're more adventurous, be a fashion sensation and wear a sheath in a color that matches one of the colors in your shoe.
Make a statement without saying a word by carrying an elegant clutch bag. Perk up that sheath dress with an eye-popping sequined or patterned bag. If you're a gal who loves animal prints, accessorize with a cheetah, leopard or tiger clutch. Go checkered or striped for a funkier look. Rock a sequined clutch and be all about the shine.
Make that sheath dress come to life with a brooch. Accentuate the one-sleeve style by pinning it high on the shoulder. Silk is a delicate material, so be sure to find a brooch that will not tear the fabric. Go for a jeweled or faux gemstone pin. Try an up-do or bun hairstyle to keep that brooch in view.
