A go-to designer for easy, glam dresses (and lots of other stuff, too) is Stacey Bendet for Alice + Olivia. The designer’s flirty dresses are easy to wear and super glam, and if you get them on sale, come at a pretty gentle price point. They have that punchy feel we’re always drawn to here at Noir Friday and we love how the brand can be worn by both mothers and daughters (including uber-glam Michelle Obama and her mini-me Malia Obama). I was chased down the street by a Roman woman while wearing this white Alice + Olivia dress (here) while in the Italian capital (true story) and I have been grabbing this printed number off the rack again and again this winter (and last) and wearing it with both heels and boots. (The boots pictured here are Chanel and are from last year’s Saks sale. The bag is Saint Laurent. See it here.)
Shop a bunch of easy and glam Alice + Olivia dresses below, plus a slew of other pieces from the brand because we’re loving the furry slides (how good are they?) and groovy florals for spring. We had a sneak peek of them at NYFW (see here) in September and are very excited to see them in stores and begin styling them a hundred different ways. (We also like to wear the Alice + Olivia pieces as elevated basics—here’s a favorite top.)
Be sure to check back often, too, because we’ll be updating this Alice + Olivia shopping list regularly.
