Reader K wrote in to recommend this dress, noting: “Thanks for your site — it’s a great resource! I just wanted to say, don’t forget about J. Crew Factory for budget options. I have purchased several pencil skirts from there, and recently got a great pair of nude kitten heels and a wool sheath dress I’m very happy with.” Aw, thank you for the compliments, K! The dress looks gorgeous, and I like all four of the colors it comes in. It was $128 at full price but is marked to $69.99 today (final sale); it’s available in sizes 00-18. Right now at J.Crew Factory you can also get an extra 15% off your purchase and extra 50% off clearance with code HAPPYSALE, meaning the dress comes down to $35.

Shout out to the commenters for putting a name to this sheath dress — it really does look like the Emmaleigh dress from a few years ago. You can see it pictured on a model in this old sheath dress roundup (it’s the pink one near the bottom).
Here’s an option in petite and plus sizes.
