On Fab's evergreen list of must haves, there has always been a "bow-back LBD" after seeing a dreamy version in Sofia Coppola's Louis Vuitton ad campaign a few years ago. Today marks an auspicious shopping day as we found this BHLDN "Nexus" dress ($240), which echoes that romantic feeling of Sofia's dress. Why is this dress so perfect? First of all, it's a bit surprising — super classic in the front, even a bit conservative — but twirl around and you have this ultra flirty bow! It's great for anyone who wants to show a little skin, but in a subtle way. Did we mention the pockets? Yes, this dress has pockets, which these days is more common, but it's still an added bonus for those who like to dance with their lip gloss and phone on them.
You will get a ton of mileage out of this dress, for years to come. It's swingy and fun, but classic enough that it will never feel out of date. You can add whatever kind of jewelry you want, but we suggest a pair of vintage-feeling pendant earrings and a simple bracelet or cocktail ring.
