Why do we love this dress?
We love that this dress is made from a slightly sheer and lightweight fabric that makes it perfect for warm-weather evenings. We also love that the classic black colour makes styling easy.
Why should I buy this dress?
This dress is designed to be fitted at the bodice and slightly loose at the hips to give the illusion of a curvier figure. It has finely ribbed knits to add textural interest, while the one-shoulder neck and asymmetric hem create an eye-catching style.
Where would I wear this dress?
You can rock this Alaïa midi dress for wedding parties and black-tie events. It is also perfect for intimate romantic occasions, such as dinner dates and anniversaries.
What shoes should I wear with this dress?
We styled the look with DOLCE & GABBANA Keira Floral-Appliqué Satin Sandals. This pair has a matching black colour and a lovely flower embellishment at the top for everlasting romance. The adjustable ankle straps with buckle fastenings let you form the perfect fit, while the towering high stiletto heels make you appear taller and sexier.
What bag should I wear with this dress?
We styled the look with a GUCCI Broadway Crystal-Embellished Satin Clutch Bag. Made in Italy, this glamorous number is adorned with a crystal-encrusted bow and GG logo detail at the clasp closure. One main compartment effortlessly holds all your evening essentials, while the detachable shoulder strap offers multiple styling options.
What we don't love about this dress?
Ribbed knit fabrics are prone to snagging and pulling when in contact with heavily embellished accessories.
