New York Fashion Week always comes with a bevy of stylish outfit inspiration, whether it’s coming from editors, influencers, stylists, runway collections, or celebrities. Attendees and designers alike work for weeks and even months to perfect what’s displayed during the week-long event, so of course, the resulting ensembles are often a huge success. But sometimes, style during fashion week can err a bit on the overtop side. And since my style sways more minimal than maximal, I always appreciate when someone debuts an outfit that whispers instead of screams. 

One such person is Laura Harrier, who attended a NYFW kick-off party for Fossil wearing a deep-V, polo-neck LBD that featured breast pockets and a maxi hemline with a gold chain necklace and black boots. The look is just the sort I talk endlessly about to my friends and coworkers, swooning over the timeless appeal and sexy yet sophisticated elegance of it all. Luckily, it didn’t take me long to find an $89 similarly polo-neck black dress from Nordstrom’s in-house label Open Edit, a brand every editor keeps in their back pocket, that gives off a near-exact vibe to Harrier’s. And with NYFW still very much going strong, I simply have to have it to wear, like, tomorrow. Shop the LBD I’m overnighting for my own fashion-week events and more gorgeous black dresses for fall below. 

WHO: Laura Harrier

I’m convinced this dress can do it all with a few changes in accessories. The office, a dinner date, a NYFW party—there’s no shortage of opportunities to wear it. 

Don’t sleep on The Drop. 

No collar, no problem. 

The neckline on this knit body-con is do pretty and feminine. 

So many editors I know own this DISSH maxi.


Might I suggest a mini alternative? 

This length is so chic and refined. Plus, I love how the sleeves are split at the wrist. 

*Mouth agape.*

Just easy. 

I’ve been eyeing this dress for a good long while. 

A blank slate.

This dress is selling out so fast. 

Ok fine, so this dress isn’t black—it’s brown. But it was too pretty not to include. 

If it falls down at the shoulders, I probably love it. 

A dress at the tippy top of my fall wishlist. 

An easy LBD like this one will get tons of use during the upcoming holidays. 

That slit, though.
