Bridal Fashion: Sheath Dresses | Arizona Weddings Magazine

One of the most versatile gown styles is a relatively modernized look called the sheath dress. The unique aspect about sheath dresses – and what makes them so popular among brides – is that they look good on any body shape. Whether a bride is apple, pear, or hourglass shaped- plus-size or petite – properly chosen sheath dresses can flatter any figure. Take a hint from the likes of Grace Kelly or Lupita Nyong’o who – born in vastly different fashion cultures and times – both rock the style in their own way. Because of the many variations to this look, the adaptability of sheath dresses makes it highly popular for a variety of occasions from casual chic, formal, or even bridal!

While sheath dresses are often around knee-length, bridal versions of this style often cascade all the way to the floor. Dozens of different materials can be used to create the perfect bridal sheath look, all depending on what style the bride is desiring to accomplish. For a more formal style, stick with lace applique to complete a traditionally romantic ensemble. Off-the-shoulder dresses or ones with capelets are perfect for a boho-chic beach or woodland wedding. Have fun with color by opting for champagne or blush tones that complete a fun look. Don’t be afraid to be daring – sheath dresses can also have stunning “wow” factor by the inclusion of a dazzling thigh-high slit, plunging neckline, or alluring backless feature. Sheath dresses can be as bold or as elegant as your imagination allows: simply take a look at some of the dresses featured below by top designers from around the world.
