Big on impact, there’s no doubt that this heroine worthy red wrap dress from Next £85 ticks all of the boxes. Flattering? Check. Elegant? Check. Dramatic? Check! What’s there not to love?

Wrap dresses’ distinctive silhouette is known as a must have wardrobe staple for good reason.

This classic wraparound dress will notably suit all shapes and sizes – flattering those with a fuller bust and cinching in at the waist to accentuate your curves. Whilst the gorgeous rich pigment red acts as a sophisticated nod to all things romantic.

I also love that it is made with temperature regulating fabrics; meaning that this long sleeved number will keep you warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s hot. Perfect for all year around. Genius!

Complete the look with black, silver, or nude heels to channel your inner goddess.

The Ted Baker AWWTUM Sculpted one shoulder dress £125 (currently reduced from £170) is a dress that is destined to pack some punch!

Envisage whispering sweet nothings in this Monsoon ‘Blue Abbey’ satin bow midi dress, £130 from Debenhams.

Created in a fit and flare silhouette, this stunning V neck dress radiates opulent elegance. I love this dress for its chic, yet understated simplicity. The low plunge is extremely flattering for those with a smaller chest and the subtle prom style skirt adds to its luxurious aesthetic.

The deep navy tone is also incredibly versatile and will work well against all skin tones.

Although originally designed as a modern take on the bridesmaid dress; don’t let the ‘never-the-bride’ association distract you from the fact that this dress masters all fashion rules immaculately. Intricate details such as cleverly placed bow, pocket detailing and subtle straps will ensure that this number will never be a one wear only piece
