Evening Wear AW15
A wander through History’s iconic evening wear but with a streak of modernity too-this season’s dresses -and there are lots of them – are riffing on a pretty princess vibe, with ruffles, frills and flouncy collars.
Take Kate Middleton as a starting point neat, polished A-line frocks or go for gold in floor-length stain with a sparkly clutch and a tiara tangled around your crown. For a subtler take on the trend, try a flouncy full skirt with a vest top or a pretty floral embellished trouser suit. For menswear, clean cut structured are worn with dickie bows and sleek leather shoes.
