At the pricier end of the market is Coast but the cost is reflected in sophisticated dresses that can be used at up market events again and again. This lipstick red dress is both gorgeous and vibrant and it’s great to see a halterneck style amongst the many strapless numbers. Speaking of strapless, this porchini-coloured bandeau dress is an elegant golden brown with a great cinched in waist that plays on the current belted trend. The pleat detailing gives it extra interest and it also comes in red.
