They say you shouldn’t mess with classic clothing items.
So when Fashion Nova provided a twist on the little black dress, some shoppers didn’t approve.
To create the £32.99 A Look Mini Dress, the online retailer added a denim bustier to an otherwise ordinary LBD.
The finished effect is pretty quirky, as the frock looks like a blend of two garments.
While some think the combination looks pretty, others say they won’t be trying the look.
Customers accused the store of “missing the mark” – and a few Instagrammers couldn’t work out what the outfit was meant to be.
Snaps of the frock were posted to Fashion Nova’s Instagram page, where they racked up 42,000 likes.
In the comments section of the post, the majority of customers said they weren’t keen on the style.
One responder asked: “What is this? I feel so uncomfortable looking at this dress.”
Another said: “Someone tell me what the f*** this is.”
A third questioned: “Who is really wearing this?”
And a fourth added: “You all might have missed the mark with this one.”
While some were baffled by the Fashion Nova get-up, others aren’t afraid to rock a LDB that’s a bit different.
One Instagram user remarked: “This is cute if you know how to wear it right.”
A second said: “I could make this work. Different but still very stylish.”
And another pointed out: “Not my style, but hey some people can rock the hell out of anything.”
