Karen Millen jazzes up jewel tones with some Marchesa-inspired detailing
Karen Millen appears to be on a bit of a Marchesa tip this season, with a range of Christmas party dresses that owe a lot to the red carpet label's romantic ruffles and intricate detailing. The blue 'soft frill' dress (£160) is perfect for ladies who're small up top, as the ruffles down the chest will create the illusion of volume, as well as accenting the collarbone. If you're after something with even more impact, it doesn't get more 'look at me' than a ruched and ruffled hot pink minidress (the 'dramatic ruffled dress' for £160). Both dresses also come in black if you're not gutsy enough to pull of jewel tones.
