Put The Classy In Classic Chic Dresses

When you think of classic chic dresses, you’re likely immediately thinking of LBDs and graceful white summer dresses.

You can get away with any rich or dark color, but shape always takes the cake. So if you’re in search of a new night favorite, the KATIE MAY Aphrodite Dress and the DRIES VAN NOTEN Green Hunali Maxi Dress were designed for you. Luckily, many others like these hidden gems exist. They also make styling a breeze when all it takes is a designer handbag and pair of heels to match. You might just RSVP after trying on these classic chic dresses—not much can compare!
