AW17 Trend Spotlight: The Dress

AW17 Dress.jpg

The dress is firmly back on the fashion radar after several seasons where separates took the lead in our styling selections with evening skirts dressed down for daytime and wear-anywhere pieces styled up and down depending on the occasion.

This season dress shapes are varied but the key to keeping dress-wearing feeling current is to raise necklines and lower hemlines. Embrace a folkloric feel with flowing fabrics in rich earthy tones and ditsy prints then nod to the 70s with long boots worn beneath; slouchy or sock fit, the choice is yours.

Style Tip:  Combine two trends in one with a red dress; it will update your wardrobe in an instant and this seasons higher necklines and longer lengths make The Red Dress more versatile less vamp.
