THE SILKY WRAP

Perfect for slipping into after a long day at work, this sophisticated, lightweight satin gown is your ticket to instant glamour, says lingerie editor Maggie Davis

There’s something effortlessly chic about a belted satin gown. For me, it conjures up images of Hollywood starlets reclining on sumptuous chaises longues. If you want to channel the old-school elegance of Lauren Bacall or Elizabeth Taylor while dipping into the autumn catwalk trend for florals (as seen at Lanvin, Burberry and Rochas), this patterned wrap is a good starting point. The striking monochrome design with black edging has a dash of oriental exoticism about it. I love the indulgent and flattering over-the-knee length, and you can choose a matching chemise nightdress in a long or short length depending on your preference. More than just a pretty piece, it’s easy to care for, too – it can be machine-washed and tumble dried. That’s what I call style with substance.
