Style Notes

This stunning number is all about that colour blocked bodice! With a deep V neckline and asymmetric sculptural tucks, this dress is a fun twist on the LBD! The cinched waist seam and tailored skirt accentuates the feminine form in this highly architectural design. Constructed out of crepe bonded jersey, this dress is perfect for a work function to an evening event alike!

  • Colour blocking throughout
  • Asymmetric bodice with deep V neckline
  • Body con silhouette

This style looks equally great on curvy and straight body shapes due to the cinched waist and tailored pencil skirt. Pair with a strappy black heel for the perfect transition from day to night and a classic mini bag such as this one. Wear your hair straight or pulled back to complement the look. If you are after other midi-length body con dresses, we have a wide selection here!
