Project D Victorine Lace Dress

The Project D Victorine Lace Dress is a sheer black lace dress that is lined in an oyster nude coloured fabric to the body and skirt, leaving the sleeves sheer. The dress has cap sleeves and a boat neck, with a fitted bodice and a longer length pleated skirt. The neck, sleeves and hemline are all trimmed in scallop edge lace and the dress has a concealed back zip fastening.

It is available in UK sizes 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16

Fabric and care: 00% nylon; lining 97% polyester, 3% polyurethane; dry clean only

Lace dresses are still big fashion news, and I particularly like this one as the nude coloured lining “lifts” the dress, but the longer skirt makes it very ladylike. I could imagine Kate Middleton being at home in this dress, and it will be interesting to see if she adds it to her collection over the coming season. The dress is easy to accessorise, and the model has chosen black courts (Sam Edelman Danielle), the Anya Hindmarch Valorie Glitter Clutch and a Mawi necklace.

By Malene Birger Mawio Lace Sleeve Maxi Dress in Black

The sleek and elegant By Malene Birger maxi dress is a stunning combination of lace and jersey. The yoke, back and sleeves are made from sheer black lace; the remainder of the dress is contrasting black jersey which falls to the floor, leaving a sexy side split to the thigh on the left side.

The dress has long sleeves, a boat neck and there are no fastenings as it is stretchy and simply pulls on to fit.

It is available in UK sizes XXS, XS, S, M, L and XL

Fabric and care: 94% modal, 6% spandex; trim 84% polyamide, 16% viscose; cool machine wash on delicate cycle.

This high octane dress is timeless and will look as glamorous next season as it does this season. I really love the fabric of this dress, the combination of the two fabrics works really well and it provides a sleek yet flattering outline whatever your figure. The lace gives the dress a romantic edge and I would be tempted to team it with a bright red box clutch and lipstick to match. Of course, heels should be high and the model is wearing the Lucy Choi glitter peep toe boots.

Project D Painted Lady Silk Maxi Dress

This Project D Dress is a primarily grey, pure silk dress, that has the impression of being a living watercolour painting, having been “daubed” with floral inspired crimson, white and black brush strokes. The dress has a boat neck, bracelet length sleeves, a hidden zip fastening at the back and it falls to floor length.

It is available in UK sizes 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16

Fabric and care: 100% silk; lining: 97% polyester, 3% polyurethane; dry clean only

This dress has an elegance all of its own. Lacking embellishment, the pared back, sleek design in pure silk is understated yet nevertheless manages to deliver a welcome dose of glamour. This is a dress for the girls who want to avoid the obvious sequin and metallic embellishments of other dresses yet still want to look glamorous enough for the red carpet. The neutral colouring gives you a free reign to choose accessories, and the model has taken advantage of this by teaming the dress with the Anya Hindmarch Valorie Clutch in silver and the Sam Edelman Danielle blue suede shoes.
