1. THE ONE-SHOULDER SILHOUETTE

This season there’s a new spin on the off-the-shoulder silhouette and it’s one that feels like an appropriate progression - the one-shoulder neckline. The Cristiana dress is exemplary of the look and it's detailed with origami-inspired folds that add new depths to the bodycon silhouette.

2. THE DAY DRESS

Days in the city call for effortless dressing and a satin shirt dress like the Isabelli will take you from Sunday brunch to sundowners without so much as a styling switch-up. Your answer to nothing-to-wear days, it works well now teamed with flats and an oversized tote but it can be layered in cooler months with chunky knitwear and leather ankle boots.

3. THE DEVORE DETAIL DRESS

Burnout detailing is a key design focus for AW17 and it breathes fresh life into the classic black cocktail dress. The Abigail is a case in point; it’s cut from a textured fabrication that secures its position alongside more trend-focused pieces and it’s artfully designed to reveal a touch of the contrasting lining for added depth. Wear it with point-toe court shoes in black suede for a look that strikes the balance between elegant and on-trend.

4. THE KNITTED DRESS

Knitwear takes on a fresh new guise in time for autumn and winter and you’d be forgiven for not noticing the fact that the Beatrice dress sits within this category. Subtle yet expertly designed, this structured piece will bring something unique to your day to evening offering. Style it for now with nude heels and add a longline trench coat when the evenings start to chill.

5. THE RUFFLE DETAIL DRESS

Even the most simplistic of pieces come adorned with ruffles this season and the Harriet bodycon dress is a charming take on the trend, complete with all the wearable attributes of your current wardrobe classics and updated in-line with the AW17 trends. Wear it solo and team it with anything from a longline trench coat to a cropped leather biker.
