Karl Lagerfeld famously said, "One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress."
This Ruched Maxi Dress by Open Edit, available at Nordstrom is certainly a testament to that statement.
Besides being incredibly versatile, this LBD rings in under $60, which we consider an acceptable price for a clothing item that you can seamlessly take from day to night.
If that sounds like a bargain, continue reading for all the details on this simple, elegant, yet slightly sexy silhouette.
A seasonless staple
With spring and summer on the way, you may think, "This dress will be perfect for the warmer weather!"
Well, guess what? Layer a sweater, oversized cardigan, or blazer overtop and a pair of black or patterned tights underneath. You can easily style this piece through the colder months as well.
Accessorize the Ruched Maxi Dress's draped elegant cowl neck with a necklace, and adjust the spaghetti straps to customize the bodice's fit.
Speaking of fit, Nordstrom says this piece fits true to size and comes in sizes XXS (OO) to XXL (18).
A polyester and spandex blend, this Maxi Dress provides a smooth and flattering fit; the rippled ruching accentuates the waist and décolletage.
Although the solid black is a great option to reach for daily, the purple dahlia colour packs a spring-y punch.
Purple is a fabulous alternative when you want to add a pop to your look or plan on making a bright and cheery entrance to an event.
You really can't go wrong with either Ruched Maxi Dress colour — but if you're looking to snap it up, you'll want to move fast as it's selling fast! The black and purple can be jazzed up for a night out with a bejeweled mule or made more laidback with a cheeky flat sandal.
