Diesel Chunky Knit Dress

Super chunky knits are filling the highstreet rails faster than ever and all the celebs are wearing them too. For a big statement look, its better to go for a bright colour or bold pattern. That’s why I’ve chosen this one from ASOS. The contrasting blue and red aztec stitching is an instant eye catcher.

It is made by Diesel and has a discreet metal branded disc on one of the cuffs. Knits are strictly for daywear only, so don’t try and pull one off for the evening. Now make sure you balance the oversized top with either skinny jeans or tights on the bottom, and for curvier girls, you should belt up with a waist clincher to create an instant shape. This chunky knit dress will set you back £120.

Taffeta Cocktail Dress

A friend of mine wore this gorgeous dress to the National TV Awards yesterday evening and it looks so much better on than it does in this picture. The colour is stunning and the material silky, it has to be the ultimate dress of the season. The colour is more purple than how it appears in the image, much more vibrant and flattering.

The top of the dress is tight like a corset to hold you in firmly and the skirt puffs out slightly from the hips giving the illusion of a tiny waist. That’s what we all like to hear!

Try pairing with some black peep toes, a stylish black cardi and a clutch for that super sexy style. The dress is from Oasis and can be bought on line or in stores for £65 – not bad for such a beauty! Oasis has a fantastic range of purple designs this Autumn/Winter in the form of dresses, jumpers, tights, tops and jackets.
