Trends may come and go, but there really is no substitute for a great dress. Striking the perfect balance between wow-factor and wearability, FW18’s stand-out silhouette, notable for its high neck, is the kind of fail-safe shape that works for every occasion. Arguably the most flattering piece you could possibly buy this season, it elongates the body, gently cinches the waist and accentuates curves – with subtlety. It’s a look that has been championed by every label from Roland Mouret and Altuzarra, who opted for dark romantic prints, to Christopher Kane, who sent a feather-embellished show-stopper down the runway. Think of it as a super-chic sartorial safety blanket. Everyone needs one.
