Dress the Population Emery Long Sleeve Sequin Sheath Dress


Not all mother of the bride evening dresses are full-length, and this stunning sheath dress is exactly why. The fully sequined dress might have been a little overwhelming (and heavy!) in a longer version, but this knee-length number strikes just the right balance between opulent and appropriate. Shop the style in deep emerald or night sky while it's 60 percent off.
