Why do we love this dress?

We love the textural play on this mini dress, as well as the smooth fabric that feels gentle and soft against the skin. Its timeless details create a classic style, while the cinched waist draws attention to your natural curves.

Why should I buy this dress?

This Alaïa mini dress pays close attention to detail as it is made with a scalloped hem. The slip-on style A-line silhouette is ideal for hassle-free wear, so you can be out the door in a minute.

Where would I wear this dress?

You can wear this versatile dress to both casual and formal occasions because of its versatile design, making it perfect for dinner dates, strolling around town and much more.

What shoes should I wear with this dress?

We styled the look with ALEXANDRE BIRMAN Lauren Leather Knee Boots. This pair makes for a high-fashion style with its tall silhouette, rounded toes and 90mm high block heels that lend you height. A convenient zipper closure at the side forms a firm fit.

What bag should I wear with this dress?

We styled the look with a SAINT LAURENT Small Le 37 Leather Bucket Bag. Its polished silhouette comes with a top handle and a detachable shoulder strap for you to switch between the looks as you please, while the generously sized inner holds onto all your essentials for the day or night.

What we don't love about this dress?

This Alaïa mini dress is not tailored with adjustable shoulder straps, which may cause discomfort to the wearer.
