This is clearly never going to win any prizes as the most exciting Dress of the Day we’ve ever featured here, but we think it’s rather lovely all the same, with some little details helping turn it from a regular old grey dress to something worth taking a second look at.
The draped neckline. The narrow belt. The corsage. The narrow, pencil shape. The fishtail skirt. We love all of these, but then we would, being complete suckers for this kind of retro styling. If you love it too, you’ll be able to wear it to just about any formal or semi-formal event you can imagine, and you’ll find it at Coast, where it’s £115.
