Where would we be without the little black* dress?
It’s chic, it’s easy to wear, you can dress it up or down as required and there’s pretty much one for every taste. With the Christmas party season well under way, the little black dress is about to get a serious workout, so here are six of our current favourites from the UK high street…
01. Rare London bustier midi dress, £55
Tulle skirts have never been trendier, but they also have a classic glamour to them that’s hard to beat. This one is just £55, and will make you feel like a movie star: or a ballerina, as the case may be…
02. Ted Baker bardot neckline bodycon dress, $195
Simple and elegant, this bodycon dress by Ted Baker is the kind of dress you can wear many different ways, without anyone realising its exactly the same dress.
03. Chi Chi London jacquard midi dress, £62.99
If you love dresses, you probably already love Chi Chi London, but if you haven’t heard of them, this is THE brand for special occasions. This jacquard midi dress is black with a touch of gold, to make it a little more interesting. A fitted bodice and full skirt complete the retro-inspired look: just add red lipstick and a great pair of heels and you’re good to go.
04. Lipsy embellished prom dress, £68
From a midi-length dress to a midi one: Lipsy’s embellished prom dress has a sweetheart neckline without the hassle of going strapless.
05. Coast ‘Kimbly’ bow cocktail dress, £49
If you DO want to go with a strapless option, however, Coast’s ‘Kimbly’ cocktail dress is down to just £49 on sale: there are still some sizes left, but you don’t want to wait too long to grab one!
06. Gaynor Maxi dress by TNFC, £80
Finally, for those times when full-on glamour is the only way to go, TNFC’s sequin maxi dress makes us want to invent an excuse to wear it. Any excuse’ll do…
*Or navy, or red, or green, or blue, or whatever your signature colour happens to be.
