WHAT TO WEAR NOW: Sleek, Sophisticated Gowns

If the invite reads formal, the dress code typically dictates that a floor length or cocktail number is in order. For your next special occasion why not step out of the black colour safety net and choose a bold saturated hue for evening. We drooled over this juicy floor length frock from Max Mara’s Spring 2011 runway show, though the price tag left us a bit cold. Enter this similar maxi dress from Asos at a fraction of the price – paired with bright silver metallics and a subtle splash of turquoise the look still reads luxe – who says you can’t have it all?
