They may not be as plentiful as previous years, but there are certainly moments as 2020 draws to a close that call for a beautiful dress - creatively styled. Channelling this spirit is fashion blogger @rachelleyadegar, who shows us how a great dress can go beyond its usual seasonal call for parties, and with the addition of a smart jacket and statement accessories can feel less dancefloor and more dinner date.
One of our favourite jewel tones, emerald green makes the perfect choice for elegant eveningwear. Our Kiera silk dress takes on the glittering jewel box hue wholeheartedly, and is accentuated further by Rachelle’s choice of jacket; our Rosalind blazer with its floral jacquard design. Keep the rest of your look simple to let that emerald shine with black strappy heels and a sleek clutch.
Going head to toe in all black feels layered and luxurious if you play with light and shade through textured pieces. Our Gish dress makes a beautiful base with its combination of sheer fabric and oversized silk spots. Keep your layers equally as tactile with our Maria velvet tuxedo jacke for additional sheen and shine, and accessories can be bold; try a flamboyant fedora and some statement earrings.
