Ask any fashionista and she’ll share that the key to a timeless wardrobe is by investing in classic pieces. Whether that means finding that one pair of jeans that makes our legs look miles long, a leather jacket that somehow looks good with everything we pair with it or a basic white tee that’s saved us on many mornings when we just couldn’t figure out what on Earth to wear, each wardrobe benefits from a roster of staple pieces. One such item that will never go out of style? A timeless little black dress. Thankfully, we found just the one — and it’s only $78!
The BCBGeneration Crossover Midi Dress is meant to be that go-to look for absolutely any occasion, both fancy and casual. It’s also the softest material imaginable. The curve-hugging dress is made of plush jersey, with a kiss of spandex to make it stretchy enough to wear to a barbecue in the summertime and beyond. It’s also totally opaque, so no need to worry about wearing a slip underneath.
While on the subject of slips, there’s another thing the dress won’t require — shapewear! That’s right: This BCBGeneration number is designed to totally glide over the belly. Want to wear this to a dinner date? No need to worry about dealing with Spanx rolling down around the tummy mid-meal. The dress is super forgiving, though many reviewers suggest that the dress does contour the curves to their best advantage.
That’s not the only thing reviewers adore about the dress. Many said that it’s easy to wear, plus the fabric has a good weight to it. One even exclaimed that if you’re curvy, “this dress will hug you in all the right places!” Another especially loved the fit for petite girls and wrote that "short girls can feel tall and fabulous in this mididress!"
The one uniting characteristic nearly all reviewers mentioned? That the dress is wildly comfortable! Blame it on the jersey: It feels like wearing the comfiest pair of sweatpants without looking like it! It’s comfortable enough to wear to work (perhaps paired with a blazer or under a chunky cardigan to dress it down) and with our favorite heels. Looking for a casual Sunday look? Pair with a messy ponytail, oversized sunglasses and a pair of white sneakers. We certainly plan on wearing this pretty dress to date night: Just pair with a clutch and a red lip, and, as one reviewer noted, her husband’s jaw hit the floor!
