Known for my statement dress collection, I understand the power an all in one look holds. A dress with that wow factor, let it be the colour, pattern or shape of it, will play an insanely important role in your working wardrobe. They shout ‘look at me’, ‘I take risks’, ‘I know what I’m doing’. Yes a dress this out there will speak volumes to the world without you needing to open your mouth.
A statement dress also falls into this strange loop-hole of being timeless, because the design is so different that it doesn’t hold a season or time. I have so many dresses that I’ve been wearing over and over again for the last few years now, simply changing up the accessories to suit that time, but still feeling that insane rush of fashion love like it was the first time. Therefore making them a good investment, something to pull out when you have a killer event, or simply for when you need a little pick me up. Although I always say don’t save for best, we spend money on clothes like this to enjoy, you want to get your monies worth and what’s the point keeping it locked up when you could be floating around central in it. Life is too short to waste time playing it safe, so grab that dress and shine.
To make this as easy as possible, I’ve combed through the dress section of NET-A-PORTER and have created an edit of my 16 favourites. All promised to have every head you walk past turned.
