The Fashion Memo

The game changer: An embellished mini dress


With every designer from Attico and Paco Rabanne to Saint Laurent and Halpern championing OTT ’80s mini dresses for FW18, the message from the runway is clear: this season, more really is more. Indulge your nostalgia and start gearing up for party season by opting for high-shine fabrics, power shoulders, puffed sleeves and copious amounts of sequins. To stop the look from teetering into costume territory, switch tack when it comes to accessories: sleek heels, slicked-back hair and minimal jewelry will give your outfit a modern edge, and ensure that these show-stopping pieces get the attention they deserve.
