Carven Sleeveless Cutout Dress
It’s so rare to find a dress that feels minimalist, pretty, wearable, and straight-off-the-runway all at the same time. This gorgeous Carven Sleeveless Cutout Dress pulls off this astonishing feat with aplomb.

Love the modern, minimalist vibe done so well by labels like Maison Martin Margiela and Helmut Lang? I do too. This dress will feel right at home in your collection. The cutouts, architectural silhouette, and curvaceous front and back racer cut all work to create that super modern look that feels straight out of a MoMA exhibition.

Say you’re more of a girly-girl? This dress has elements of that too. The demure round neck, full skirt, and knee-length hem -- not to mention the gorgeous poppy color – are just plain pretty.

Yes, this woven cotton/ acrylic/ nylon dress will set you back a chunk of money. But, think of the possibilities. The clearly upscale piece will be ideal for those occasions that require you to dress to impress. The ballet, a fabulous art gallery opening, or swanky fundraiser are all perfect places to unveil this stunner.

But, unlike many designer creations, this dress is also very wearable – nothing too revealing or over-the-top about this frock. That means it can also go to brunch with the girls or to a weeknight cocktail party. That kind of versatility makes this Carven dress worth the splurge. It will be serving you well for years to come.
