This floor-length dress by Shona Joy is crafted out of stunning geometric lace that frames the body beautifully. It features an architectural plunge V neckline and mesh cut-outs at the sides and back, adding a sexy edge. The body con silhouette falls into a semi-sheer skirt that veils the legs. This little black dress has a modern edge – perfect for those that want to stand out!

This style looks great on curvy body types. Pair with a simple black heel and minimal accessories to let the dress do all the talking! Perfect the effortless look with wavy hair, or try a straight ponytail for a sleek look. Try our other little black dress picks here!

Arabesque Maxi Dress is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Standout Dress for a Fun Occassion I rented this dress recently for a Year 12 Ball. I loved how it looked and felt, and I was able to comfortably dance in it. I did have a few problems with it though: it was difficult to sit down in, but manageable; the mess kept getting caught on my shoes and bracelet; and the wire at the top did not sit right, maybe it was that the top was too big, I don't know. I would still recommend this dress!
