Empha­siz­ing the waist, a sheath dress makes a woman grace­ful, appe­tiz­ing and ele­gant.

Maxi mod­els look bet­ter on tall girls, while minia­ture ones can choose short­ened options that make legs longer. Girls of any build — thin, ath­let­ic, full, dressed in a sheath dress, become fem­i­nine and grace­ful.

There are mod­els for expec­tant moth­ers that help to slight­ly reduce the tum­my, soft­en­ing the round­ness.

The dress empha­sizes vol­umes, visu­al­ly thin­ning the waist, enlarg­ing the chest and hips. If the first can be suc­cess­ful­ly beat­en with a fin­ish, a com­bi­na­tion of fab­rics, then the “case” mod­el makes the wide hips sig­nif­i­cant­ly heav­ier. This is the only case when styl­ists advise look­ing for oth­er options.

In oth­er cas­es, you need to pay atten­tion so that the clothes fit nice­ly in height, with­out form­ing wrin­kles and not pulling togeth­er on the chest and hips. A hid­den zip­per on the side ensures a per­fect fit to the body. In some cas­es, you can order a dress in the ate­lier.


The clas­sic sheath dress has a midi length, one-piece front and back details. The pres­ence of sleeves has been trans­formed over the years, fash­ion­able evo­lu­tion today allows not only straps, but also oth­er sleeve styles.

What is invari­able is the darts, which “draw” the waist, mak­ing the woman slim­mer and taller.

A cut-off waist in a clas­sic dress is unac­cept­able, it will break all visu­al effects.

To ensure a beau­ti­ful sil­hou­ette, a dense fab­ric with a beau­ti­ful tex­ture (moire, damask, bro­cade) is used. The length of the dress helps to cre­ate the right image and sets the tone for the whole cel­e­bra­tion: a short one is asso­ci­at­ed with a mod­est cel­e­bra­tion, a long one will dec­o­rate a bright and wide hol­i­day. The wed­ding option is called a col­umn dress. If the dress has a train or a wide hem, then it is referred to as a “mer­maid”. A sep­a­rate option is a pen­cil dress with a nar­row or straight skirt.

A strict dress looks organ­i­cal­ly framed by a neck­line.

An open back or plung­ing bust will add a sexy touch with­out ruin­ing the over­all style. This out­fit looks roman­tic and gen­tle.

An ele­gant sheath wed­ding dress is dis­tin­guished by sophis­ti­ca­tion, which will cer­tain­ly delight the bride and those around her. Mod­est con­cise options can be worn in every­day life, so they will be rel­e­vant after the wed­ding.

With lace

Open­work and translu­cent fab­rics are com­bined with dense mate­ri­als to empha­size the beau­ty of the bride, make her image mys­te­ri­ous and beau­ti­ful.

A dress of any length can be com­plete­ly open­work or high­light spe­cif­ic details with del­i­cate weav­ing. Lace adorns the lacon­ic fab­ric, the use of dou­ble fab­ric — open­work and lin­ing — helps to add lux­u­ry and sec­u­lar­i­ty. The lace can match the col­or and tone of the com­pan­ion fab­ric or be dif­fer­ent.

Tra­di­tion­al options for white dress­es with bright col­or trims (red, gold, black, light blue and blue) help cre­ate a unique style that will echo the dec­o­ra­tions through­out the wed­ding. This bold ver­sion will appeal to the orig­i­nals and make the hol­i­day unfor­get­table.

For a tra­di­tion­al fin­ish, very beau­ti­ful and fem­i­nine options are pos­si­ble: trans­par­ent trim on the sleeves, full or par­tial — for decol­lete parts of the body. Lace is used to cre­ate a train or skirt, to dec­o­rate a belt, bows. Sheath dress allows you to cre­ate dif­fer­ent open­work com­bi­na­tions, while remain­ing sophis­ti­cat­ed.

The mod­el goes well with dif­fer­ent acces­sories, while you should fol­low the rule of accents: the sim­pler the dress, the more intri­cate the details can be. For com­plex and lace-trimmed options, lacon­ic minia­ture ele­ments are suit­able — belts, clutch­es, gloves, which should be in the same col­or scheme to make up a sin­gle set.

Wedding dress accessories

An ele­gant dress of the bride can be com­ple­ment­ed with open­work or fur capes (accord­ing to the sea­son), a strict clas­sic dress can be com­ple­ment­ed with a jack­et or cardi­gan. The com­bi­na­tion of a light almost office ver­sion of the dress with a bright blue or red jack­et looks beau­ti­ful. On a com­bi­na­tion of two pri­ma­ry col­ors, the whole style of the new­ly­weds can be built.

Jew­el­ry can repeat the theme of the dress or be brighter (when choos­ing a strict mod­el). The case will look wor­thy in a beau­ti­ful frame of pearls, rhine­stones, gold, good jew­el­ry. When choos­ing jew­el­ry (ear­rings, neck­laces, bracelets), remem­ber that they should look expen­sive and styl­ish, so you need to give pref­er­ence to sets.

Wedding dress sheath and jewelry

Avoid sequins and sequins, exces­sive embell­ish­ments for lace pat­terns, and options with rich fit­tings. All acces­sories of the bride must be arranged.

The wed­ding dress looks per­fect with heels. Low shoes do not fit this mod­el. With a long dress, shoes should be as sim­ple and ele­gant as pos­si­ble, for exam­ple, closed pumps are a clas­sic for the ages. Short and midi ver­sions of the sheath can be com­ple­ment­ed with more fes­tive shoes, and ankle boots for a mini dress are also accept­able.

Shoes should be fem­i­nine, they can be the same col­or as the dress, or they can be dif­fer­ent, mak­ing up a har­mo­nious set with­out break­ing out of the over­all style.

Shoes for a wedding dress

Shoes with a round or point­ed toe with thin heels look beau­ti­ful, fash­ion­able options can be used. Boats dec­o­rat­ed with a pat­tern or trim are accept­able.


The bride’s hair and make­up help bring out the nat­ur­al beau­ty of the face. In wed­ding make-up, they cre­ate a gen­tle look, giv­ing the skin radi­ance and blush. They try to avoid glit­ter and aggres­sive com­bi­na­tions. The hair­style depends on the length of the hair, it can be dec­o­rat­ed with tiaras, head­bands, ele­gant hair­pins and rib­bons.

A veil or hats can be a beau­ti­ful accent. When using active hats, it is bet­ter to refuse ele­gant and bright jew­el­ry on the neck or arms.
