redhalter_coast.jpgIt's the time of year that Coast comes into its own. I've always considered the brand - which specialises in eveningwear - as the stallwart for posh parties and Summer weddings, and with a mid-season sale in full swing, now is a good time to invest in something that can be stashed away for a formal event. The brand is especially good if you're petite, tall or have a body that doesn't lend itself to dresses, as there are loads of pretty formal separates that you can put together for a better fit. I especially love the Va-va-voom of the 'Lidia' ruched top (£35), which would look great with a pencil skirt and some scarlet heels.
