This stunning black dress from Nicholas is a chic take on the LBD. It juxtaposes a high neckline with an open back and delicate crossover straps, as well as a structured pencil skirt with playful geometric cutouts at the waist. The beautiful lace is delicately overlaid on bonded crepe de chine fabric; this combined with the asymmetric split makes this a perfect day-to-night piece.
