I always freak out before I go to a Northwestern alumni event and try to find purple things to wear (purple is Northwestern’s color), so I bought this Donna Morgan dress at Amazon. I’m returning it because it’s a little too long on me to look flattering with the flat shoes I wanted to wear, but it’s a great dress. It’s made from a nice, sort of stretchy material that’s a little thin — not a ponte level of thickness, if that’s not what you’re looking for. It comes in a ton of different colors, so if you’re on the hunt for a very classic sheath dress in an unusual color (or alternately, navy, black, etc.) and you’re taller than me (I’m 5’4″), I would recommend this dress. Some colors are as low as $26, although many are priced at $98 and are eligible for Prime (and Amazon Wardrobe). The dress comes in sizes o–16. Cap Sleeve Stretch Crepe Sheath Dress
A plus-size option that comes in purple (a darker shade than this one) as well as cobalt blue and black is at Saks OFF 5th for $49.99 on sale. It’s available in sizes 16W–22W.
