Just when women with curves thought they were safe, here comes a trend to test us. The shift dress - than 60s staple we saw on Twiggy a hundred times in the 1960s - is back. It can be a tricky one to wear, particularly if you're big up top, but a little Mary Quant style mini does wonders for showing of a good pair of legs. Topshop are so sure of the trend that they've made this button back dress in a range of colours (red and orange are currently available online).

If you'd like to give this look a go, I'd advise you to avoid going too Felicity Shagwell, and put those knee-high kinky boots to the back of the wardrobe ready for the next Austin Powers themed party. Instead, go for a more London-Mod look. Kate Moss has made it ok to wear thick black tights, and a pair of patent shoes (flat if you're tall enough, wedges if you're not) would top this off a treat. Black smoky eyes and beehive hair are entirely optional!
