Five Drop Dead Gorgeous Dresses To Try For November

Nothing beats a knockout dress. It’s a wear-anywhere, day-to-night, one-piece wonder that will make you feel utterly fabulous. Here are five unapologetically fabulous dresses to dream about.

I love the simplicity of this stunning tunic dress. The rich shade of raspberry red absolutely sells it. Red can look cheap, especially for evening, but the softness of this particular shade, the fluidity of the silhouette and the romantic frill-sleeve detailing prevents it from looking in any way brash.

This Oriental-inspired dress balances conservatism and sexiness beautifully. The gorgeous shade of earthy ochre looks wonderful on pale complexions as well as sallow. I love how it has been styled here with  a single chandelier earring. It adds a really modern touch to the whole look.

Clever draping can be incredibly flattering. I love how this dress covers the wearer completely, from neck to wrists, but reveals her figure subtly and beautifully. Pairing this shade of regal purple with a fire-engine red sock boot makes it feel totally fresh and contemporary.

Lace and silk is an exquisite combination. The 1920s style of this dress really appeals to me. It’s elegant and sophisticated but feels a little bit fun too. Style it with boots for day, then throw on an amazing heel for the perfect desk-to-dinner outfit.

This Massimo Dutti piece is my idea of dress heaven. Navy silk is such an elegant choice, and I adore the fluidity of the cut, the chic drop waist and the elegant frilled collar.
