Insomniac Sale Picks: Black Sheath Dresses

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Anne requested a few picks for black sheath dresses, so here we go:

Nic+Zoe Ponte Sheath Dress – was $140, now $125.99

Anne was specifically searching for relatively modest black sheaths, and this one delivers. With a high neckline and knee-length hem, it’s a classic cut. And it’s made from ponte knit, so it will be stretchy and comfortable, but structured. Best of both worlds! Available in sizes XS – XL.

Vince Camuto Sheath Dress – was $128, now $51.99

Such an eye-catching neckline/collar detail on this dress! Even if you throw a blazer over it, the contrast detail will show. And the contouring lines and fixed waistband add interest. Available in sizes 2 -14. Also available in red. Size availability varies by color.

Tropical Wool Sunburst Sheath Dress – was $168, now $149.99

Another twist on the classic that will work alone or worn layered. This style is wool, yes, but tropical wool works year-round in most climates. It is lined for easy wear with hosiery in fall and winter, and falls 20.5″ from the natural waist. Available in sizes 0 -14.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for black sheath dresses:

  1. Macy’s – Great selection of black sheaths, most of them classic and modest.
  2. Nordstrom – A few options are more appropriate to cocktail, but Nordstrom includes sheaths with high collars and full sleeves, in addition to more traditional versions like this one.
  3. 6pm and Zappos – Both online powerhouses showcase black sheaths in a variety of styles and at a variety of price points.
  4. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! Sheath dresses abound at thrift stores since they’ve been classics for decades, and black is nearly always available. ( can help you locate stores near you.)

    Love that Nic+Zoe one! Its cut is very much like a taupe BR dress I scored at a consignment store and love. Plus, washable *and* pockets?? Its sizing is Small (4-6) and Med (8-10), which I’m never sure what to do with, because I’m between a 6 or an 8 – never a 4 in anything that needs to fit on the bottom and never a 10 in anything that needs to fit on the top. At least it’s Zappos; I think I’ll order both. The tropical wool would be a more conservative choice for work, but I do like the cut of the Nic+Zoe better.

    Not that I personally will ever have to worry about it, but what happens when a woman is smaller than a size 0? Are there negative number sizes? Multiple 0s?
    It may sound like I’m being a wisea**, but I seriously want to know.
