The elegant lace dress
Turn heads at all those summer soirees with this show-stopping red lace dress. Just add simple accessories and let the dress do the talking, says M&S.com editor, Nicola Copping.
If there is a sure-fire way of making an impact, then wearing a red lace dress is it. It says femininity, strength and confidence all in one, and who better to wear such a statement piece than the indomitable Baroness Lawrence. This red per una version really is a special occasion dress, perfect for a summer wedding or just for ensuring that ‘wow’ moment when you walk into a room, and the elbow-length sleeves help to add balance to the shift-dress shape. Plus, I don’t know about you, but I always feel more confident when my upper arms are covered, as if there is an extra level of elegance to be achieved by being that bit more covered up. Keep it simple with black accessories and a knockout smile.
