The standout party dress
Give your summer wardrobe the ultimate colour shock with this beautiful neon dress. Think high-voltage style at its ladylike best, says M&S.com womenswear editor, Charlene Barton.
While the term neon may traditionally call to mind glow sticks, psychedelic prints and the 80s rave scene, fast-forward 30 or so years and the catwalks have cast it in an entirely new light. Still bold, still bright – only this time, sophisticated and infinitely more grown-up. Take this M&S Collection dress: crafted with a beautiful jacquard weave and intricate embellishment at the neckline, it highlights a rich attention to detail that perfectly encapsulates summer’s romantic mood. Pair it with simple sandals and a sleek clutch to keep the rest of your look minimal – a true conversation piece such as this speaks for itself.
