Why Sheath Dresses Are One 90s Fashion We Still Love

Sheath Dresses Are Back!

Not all 90s fashions are still popular today! Does anyone remember the crimped hair, coloured sunglasses and blonde highlights? How about Vanilla Ice? Luckily sheath dresses are still hanging in there, and are one of the better-looking fashions of the time! Remember Jennifer Aniston's many sheath dresses in 'Friends?' Exactly!

Well the 90s may be long ago now (even writing that makes me feel SO old), but Sheath dresses have always been available at OuterInner.com, but did you know that this 90s icon is coming back in fashion in a big way? Many girls aren't sure if a sheath dress is for them, so we're going to look at who they suit and some of the different types that we have on offer at the moment. First lets look at what the sheath dress is, who made them famous and then if they'll work for you:  

What are sheath dresses?

The classic sheath dress is essentially a big, rectangular piece of fabric folded over and sewn along one edge, producing a sheath or tube shape. They are actually one of the oldest styles of dresses, being common thousands of years before Christ in Ancient Egypt. They've remained popular until the present day, but became particularly chic in the 90s. Star of 'Friends,' Jennifer Aniston, was and still is a big fan of sheath dresses. Here she is in 1996 with the other girls from 'Friends' wearing a sheath dress:

Here's Jennifer again in 2010 wearing, yep, you guessed it, a sheath dress:

They've remained so in demand because sheath dresses are really simple, timeless dresses that are suitable for women of various shapes and many different occasions. They're usually just one colour, low on detail and are often reasonably short.  

Will Sheath Dresses Suit Me?

It can be hard to find a dress that suits every shape, but sheath dresses are pretty versatile and they are really great for girls with an hourglass figure (but they usually look good in most styles), but also thankfully for pear-shapes. Since the majority of women are pears then sheath dresses are a good addition to your wardrobe! So let's head back in time to the 90s! Since they're pretty figure-hugging, sheath dresses will show off an hourglass shape's curves brilliantly, but they're also good for pears as, although your hips are wider, as long as you balance your upper half you'll also look lovely. Bigger busts won't need to worry about creating that balance, but if you've got a smaller bust then you can wear a shrug or choose a two color dress which has a lighter, more eye-catching color.
