Get the Look

Sanaa Lathan is one of my favorite actresses who has great style along with great talent. This week she was spotted at the Los Angeles screening of Law Abiding Citizens. The gray batwing (Dolman) sleeve dress she wore was simple yet sexy. The batwing sleeve seems to be a popular style for Fall. It also hides the batwings many of us have on the back of our arms.

If you like her look, I have found a similar version from my favorite chain store Banana Republic. Banana goes up to a size 16 and XL which are generously cut unlike other chain stores.

This is a great dress for going out with the girls or to wear on a date. It is a body conscious dress so be sure to wear the proper undergarments and do a couple of crunches the day before. You know how that goes, when you try to lose 20 lbs in 2 days before a big event. You work out like crazy, but it never helps. I always do crunches the day before, there is no big difference, but it makes me feel better.

Gray dress, Banana Republic, $98, sizes S-XL, Nine West shoes, $89, Forever21 necklace $4.80
For my plus size curvy girls Baby Phat has a black batwing (Dolman) sleeve dress similar to Sanaa’s. I would lose the belt. The Baby Phat dress also comes in sizes XS-XL.
Dress, Baby Phat $59, Sizes 1X-3X, Shoes, Nine West $89, Necklace, Ann Taylor, $55
