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.
