classic ruched dress
A lovely classic dress for work or a dressy dinner. I like to opt for dresses when I am extra short in time to get ready or when I just simply lack any interest / creativity to pull up an outfit that looks like something. Yes, that happens to style bloggers more than you would think. Having a few classic designed dresses ready to wear in the closet are life savers and they create a polished and elegant outfit instantly.
The cap sleeves on this dress add structure to the shoulders, plus I always find dresses with at least a little bit of sleeves more elegant. The ruched, tulip-style hemline add a lot of interest and more feminine flare to the outfit. The dress is true to size and it comes in black also (HERE). My only complaint would be that the fabric (blend of polyester, rayon, spandex) wrinkles more than I would like, hence ironing is a must.
