We can’t tell what we love more about this ’70s-does-’50s velvet dress: the oversized, baroque paisley print, or the incredible color palette of rust reds and rich browns. Either way, it’s a show-stopper. Princess seams and darting at back give the perfect wiggle-dress shape, while the plunging back with bow-and-embellshiment detail give just the right amount of whimsy to this otherwise impeccably streamlined design.
