One of my favorite fashion forward details is a “strong” shoulder, but being petite it’s not a look I get to dabble in often! It can easily channel linebacker chic and make me appear as wide as I am tall. With this dress from Express, however, I feel the slight padded puff sleeves are enough to elevate a simple sheath yet keep it subtle. It comes in fresh white as well as black and a wine color, which would be beautiful for heading into the next season!
Although this piece is in regular sizing, it fits better than some petite pieces! The xxs regular is fitted on me, with a well proportioned waistline and hem that hits above my knees. The medium weight material feels similar to a stretchy crepe knit with lining, and note it’s pullover style with no zipper entry and the front buttons are faux (stitched shut). The bottom skirt has a gently flaring A-line shape.
Thank you to Express for partnering on this post.
