New York Fashion Week always comes with a bevy of stylish outfit inspiration, whether it's coming from editors, influencers, stylists, runway collections, or celebrities. Attendees and designers alike work for weeks and even months to perfect what's displayed during the weeklong event, so of course, the resulting ensembles are often a huge success. But sometimes, style during fashion week can err a bit on the overtop side. Since my style sways more minimal than maximal, I always appreciate when someone debuts an outfit that whispers instead of screams. 

One such person is Laura Harrier, who attended an NYFW kickoff party for Fossil wearing a deep-V polo-neck LBD that featured breast pockets and a maxi hemline with a gold chain necklace and black boots. The look is just the sort I talk endlessly about to my friends and co-workers, swooning over the timeless appeal and sexy yet sophisticated elegance of it all. Luckily, it didn't take me long to find an $89 polo-neck black dress from Nordstrom's in-house label Open Edit, a brand every editor keeps in their back pocket, that gives off a near-exact vibe to Harrier's. With NYFW still going strong, I simply have to have it to wear, like, tomorrow. Shop the LBD I'm overnighting for my own fashion-week events and more gorgeous black dresses for fall below.
