How to ensure your girl is the best dressed at the party? Choose this easy-to-wear dress featuring colourful stripes in gem-like hues, says kidswear editor Maggie Davis
Rich jewel tones are a big trend this winter, with designers such as Dior, Burberry and Dolce & Gabbana reviving the allure of royal blues, jade greens and metallic purples. Happily, they are shades that translate elegantly to girlswear, as this cute prom dress proves. As well as being the perfect party number, it’s smart enough to wear for winter weddings or on Christmas Day. I love the subtle Audrey Hepburn-style bow detail around the waist and the classic fit-and-flare shape. More than just a pretty piece, it’s also practical and can be washed at just 30 degrees. Pair it with sparkly Mary Janes and a cropped blazer for a modern twist. However she wears it, it’s sure to add a dash of old-fashioned glamour to your girl’s wardrobe.
