Easy to Wear 1970s Halston Black Jersey One Shoulder High Low Dress

This classic little black dress is a great basic that you will reach for over and over. Halston is one of those labels that with the more time that goes by it actually feels more relevant. It is easy to think of this piece as both a treasured collectible and a closet staple. Every time you slip it on you will look and feel amazing. It has his signature simplicity and masterful draping along with a touch of Studio 54 sexiness thrown in. The dress is made from a light weight black jersey. To wear it you simply slip it on and hook it to close at the top of one shoulder. The bodice is a one shoulder cut and is meant to skim over you. It has elastic through the waist so is very easy to wear and comfortable. I added a grosgrain ribbon that will be sent with it but it could be worn with any belt or with none. The skirt is one panel of fabric that wraps around you and then crosses over at the front. It is cut so the hem follows a soft curve as it comes around the back and then curves up on both sides to meet the waist. This gives it a look of a peplum around the waist that I love. It also gives you a bit of a high low feel with some leg showing at the front and at the back it drops to a full length. This is a signature Halston dress that can go from day or night. Excellent condition
