For what to wear to an autumn event, we went to to shop a selection of sheaths in sultry shades for sipping and savoring.  This cozy hue is a go-to for the chilly nights of November and right into the Holiday Season and beyond.  Many of our readers are asking us to find dresses with sleeves, so we chose a few of each varietal to suit your palette.
