COLORBLOCKED PONTE KNIT SHEATH DRESS
Perfect color-blocking and fit
I originally went into my local Express to try on the "Color Block T-Shape" dress in my attempts to expand my work-to-play wardrobe and I hated the boxy fit, but loved the white and black contrast. Luckily, this dress was nearby with the same color scheme, a similar color-block, and a much more skimming fit.
This dress is SO flattering thanks to the black blocking on both sides and is the perfect addition to both a work wardrobe and a going out wardrobe. The v-back also didn't hit as low as I thought it might (no exposed bra!) which was a welcome surprise, but I would still recommend wearing it with a blazer to the office.
Because there is a seam going around the waist, the dress looks best if worn with a belt (a red skinny belt looks fantastic!)
For reference, I am 5'4", 136 lbs, and a 34D and got the size Small (my typical size in Express tops and dresses).
