Every Monday at the Cut, we’re highlighting one great purchase that won’t take up your whole paycheck. If you’re looking for something to splurge on instead, check back every Friday for an item that’s absolutely worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity.
If you find yourself eyeing crop tops despite the fact that snow is starting to hit the ground, opting for something more practical that still reminds you of warm days is a good move. This wrap dress from Madewell is the antidote to the bulky, all-black winter ensemble: The dark, floral pattern lends an air of femininity (and color!) to the black base and complements the flowing silhouette. Layer with a cozy turtleneck to make it winter-appropriate and throw on a leather jacket to add a little toughness.
