There's a time and place for a black dress, then there are times when you want something more than a simple black dress. This metallic maxi dress is not only beautiful, but it's comfortable as well. If you have an occasion where you need something more then your usual, I would consider getting this style. The fabric adds just the right amount of shimmer without being too eye-catching. The neckline is adjustable so if you sometimes feel sensory with how high/low cut a neckline is, know that you can fully adjust it for your needs. The fabric is stretchy and opaque, the length is a maxi length. It features a straight fit which makes it extremely flattering. The sizes run larger, I sized down to a medium in the photos.
