The Autumn/winter wardrobe needs to be prepared for a wide array of functions.
From London Fashion Week and Fashion’s Night Out (taking place across the globe on 6th Sept) to the numerous glamorous awards ceremonies that take place across the world, September and October are fabulous months for fashion and style.
So taking inspiration from the glitz and glamour of these events, we bring you some of our most fabulous dresses from Galleria Conti HQ.
Red dresses are always worth investing in, particularly at this point in the year, prior to the Christmas party season. This Moschino Cheap and Chic dress in pillar-box red is a fantastic edition to any fashionista’s closet. With a cowl neck-line and subtle ruche detailing on the left hand side of the garment, this flatters almost any figure and looks amazing with silver or animal-skin accessories.
If you’re looking to channel something a little more conventional (think of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s) then this little black dress is an essential tool in achieving that stylishly sophisticated look. With fitted panelling, and an open back detailing, this dress looks fabulous with a set of pearls and a sophisticated ‘up-do.’
One of the most popular items this season, are our Mama off-shoulder cocktail dresses that come in both blue and pink. The V-neckline created a body-wrap effect across the front and the panelling creates almost ‘body-con’ effect which really flatters the feminine figure.
Of course, we also have a number of actual body-con dresses courtesy of BCBGMaxAzria, such as the multi-colour Jacquetta dress and the Kisha short sleeve bandage dress. These garments all look fantastic with a pair of killer heels and a glamorous clutch bag for any party.
We didn’t have Halston Heritage in our recent summer sale, but this season the label is back … with some amazing party wear including the aubergine V-neck dress. With a plunging neck-line and concealed zip detailing, this dress is synchs in the waist and looks amazing on those with both fair and bronzed complexions.
The ‘Queen of the Cocktail Dress’ title however, must be awarded to Nicole Miller for her fabulous knee-length dresses with ruched detailing down the sides. This season, the designer does not disappoint, infusing her signature style, with a modern, metallic-based colour palette to produce some amazing statement pieces.
This slate coloured dress with sequin detail on the shoulders is fully lined for a slim, fitted silhouette and has a cut out back to create a subtle, but uber-stylish look.
We also happen to love this gold dress with capped sleeves, which would be the perfect outfit for a glamorous Christmas party and would look fabulous effortlessy styled with some black court shoes and a matching blazer.
