Fall Classics Ponte Sheath Dress

what makes a classic? this is a question i’ve asked myself several times this month as Talbots Fall Classics Guest Editor. so who better to ask for advice than my classics partner? Talbots is a brand built on classic wardrobe essentials who stayed true to their vision since 1947. according to Talbots, a classic is a statement maker because it inspires you to make a statement. it has character. it doesn’t need to be loud because it speaks volumes. and my favorite quote: the beauty of classic style is that it can be worn differently by everyone. can i hear an amen?! yes, you can take any classic item and put your spin on it each and every time you wear it. that’s what i love most about the classics. and this is how you keep a perennial favorite like a sheath dress from becoming stale or stodgy. all we need to do to keep the classics alive and fresh is to add our personality to it. an easy way to do that is with accessories.

today’s ootd is a perfect example of a timeless, simple and chic classic put into play. enter an indigo Ponte sheath dress that’s perfect for a day at the office. this dress is tailored yet breathable and flattering thanks to a hint of stretch with Ponte fabric. a sheath dress in a neutral color is a blank canvas. and that’s where the fun comes in as you can add or subtract accessories to your heart’s content. pop a blazer over the top for a polished nine-to-five look. or let it fly solo accompanied by a chic scarf and statement handbag. have a little fun with pattern mixing as i’ve done today with striped block heel pumps and paisley scarf. or skip the scarf altogether and wear a pendant necklace. the choice is yours when an outfit starts with a sophisticated, stylish, and classic Ponte sheath dress.

this paisley scarf is grounded in a rich color palette. it’s the perfect pop of color for this indigo sheath dress.

no outfit is complete without a handbag. the silhouette of the season happens to be a hobo bag.

  2. Great classic outfit! I love Talbots, it’s a pity that they don’t have any shop in Poland. Next year I will be in the States again so my first shopping stop is going to be Talbots:) It’s my routine every time I go to visit my friends and family there. Renata xo
