Jason Wu’s Fall/Winter 2012 Collection

Sexy Sheaths

Classy sophisticate is one look this season that will be easy to emulate with the sheath dress. Seen all over the runways in designers’ fall collections, this piece is a base anyone can wear, and it is sure to flatter any body type. The fitted bodice with the knee-grazing hemline keeps the look sleek, and office appropriate. And the subtle adornments, as seen in Jason Wu’s military-inspired sheath, give a complete look that will take the guessing out of accessorizing. Other options provide prints (Just Cavalli) and bold colors (Diane von Furstenberg) that add all the pop needed for head turns. —Lynn Norusis
