Our Piko Tunic Dress means business.

piko_top_blazer-4

There’s nothing like a statement blazer over an easy black dress to turn up the volume on your usual workwear wardrobe. We love this structured linen lovely by Ark & Co. Not only is the crisp, contrasting black and white linen comfortable, but it also kills in the style department.

Wear this bad-girl blazer out on the town and you’ll attract the right kind of attention!

We’ve paired our best-selling Piko Tunic Dress with the Iset Jeweled Necklace, (one of our new favorite statement necklaces) to add a little playfulness to the look. But feel free to take it in a more classic direction with a strand of pretty pearls.

Accessorizing a perfect LBD is one of the best parts about wearing one. Your options are virtually endless!

Trashy Diva Kimono Dress – Love!

Kimono Dress by  Trashy Diva

Has there ever been a Trashy Diva Dress at Minx that we haven’t just adored?! I think not. And this vintage inspired kimono spinner is our new favorite.

Those sleeves! That waistline! The twirling circle skirt!

Move over, all other LBD’s… there’s a new girl in town.

1940’s Kimono Dress Details:

The vintage inspired dress details a low-cut front and back neckline with gathering at the shoulders, upper bust, and upper back. The underbust is sewn in sections to give it a sleek and flattering fit. The triple band waist sections are lined for an extra flattering touch. The skirt is below the knee and combines bias cut and straight cut panels for a flattering A-line shape.

Fabric: Rayon Crepe De Chine

Lining: Waist lined in Rayon
