If you're looking to emulate the chic looks seen on First Ladies past and present -- including Michelle Obama -- the search is over! JCPenney reveals the secret to looking classic and put-together without looking overdressed: The sheath dress.

"It's a very ladylike look, but it's actually very fashion-forward," JCPenney says. "The trick to pulling this off without the prim and proper vibe is a bold, graphic print and the way and you accessorize."

Mixing up the accessories -- whether it's the shoes, the belt or the jewelry -- can give the sheath dress an entirely new look.

"Wear this to a party and you'll look absolutely stunning, but what we love best about our sheaths is how easy they are to dress down," JCPenney says. "Throw a blazer or a sweater on it, and there! You're good to go for the office."
