For Fall, a Sheath Dress With Some Personality

By

My biggest weakness is pieces that feature unusual draping and weird-looking lumps. If it appears that you are growing a strange pouch from a part of your body, I am instantly ready to hand over my credit card. So when I came across this dress by Swedish label Svek with its tucked tweed bodice, I was hooked. The seemingly demure long-sleeve sheath silhouette is offset by the swath of fabric that accentuates the waist, transforming it from an otherwise ho-hum piece into something more conceptual. The shredded sleeves add to the imperfect vibe and keep the textile from looking too stuffy. Like the site recommends, it would be great worn with a pair of tights and flat boots.
