Most of us have owned a few at one time or another but their popularity waxes and wanes more than just about any other garment on the market. It’s about time you give this little number a little thought because it is one of the more versatile pieces that you can own.
The sack dress can really make or break your outfit. We have all seen the girl that just threw on a sack dress and looks like she is just wearing a towel. You may as well invest in bathrobes for every day of the week and stay at home. The way to avoid looking like that is to accessorize. I know that this seems simple but it is super important with the sack dress.
Let’s make something clear. A sack dress is a simply cut dress that has a straight seam form the shoulder to the hem. It is, unsurprisingly, shaped like a sack. There is no darting and there is no waistline. You need to add any shape that you want to have all by yourself. This is why my first suggestion is belts. If you add a belt to a sack dress you instantly give yourself a waistline and avoid looking like you spend your life wearing bathrobes.
The addition of clunky bracelets and jangly earrings will break up this look as well. A sack dress can have any kind of neckline you can imagine so you should buy a necklace that fits with the shape of the design. If you have never heard of Batucada jewelry then you need to look it up and add some pieces to your collection.
Making sure that your sack dress is made out of the right materials so that it falls well is another consideration. You don’t want anything cheap and puffy like the material that they make bathrobes out of. You want your sack dress to be either light and airy or heavy and flowing like water.
