Why do we love this dress?

We love that this Melrose mini dress is covered in an elegant black colour that makes styling quick and easy, accented with flock dot ruffles for a visually appealing look. The fish eye darts help create a fitted look.

Why should I buy this dress?

This dress is fully lined so you can move and sit without any worries, while the invisible centre-back zipper closure allows for hassle-free wear every time. The plush velvet feels remarkably smooth against the skin, making it perfect for long hours of wear.

Where would I wear this dress?

This dress is ideal for a number of different occasions, whether it is a date night, cocktail party or a fun weekend out with your girlfriends.

What shoes should I wear with this dress?

We styled the look with MANOLO BLAHNIK Mingonna 90 Suede And Flocked Mesh Pumps. In matching black, this pair is made from suede and mesh with a grey checkerboard pattern and pointed toes. Buckled ankle straps offer extra support and a customisable fit for comfortable wear, while stiletto high heels make you look taller.

What bag should I wear with this dress?

We styled the look with BALENCIAGA Hourglass Xs Black Velvet Tote. This Italian-made piece has the label’s signature silhouette with a front flap and a B logo plaque. It has a top handle and a convenient detachable shoulder strap for multiple styling options.

What we don't love about this dress?

We wish that this Melrose mini dress had a non-slip silicone lining along the strapless neck.
