Embellished peplum bodycon dress £34.99 MissGuided

We love the high neck and embellished collar and cuffs of this cute little party dress from Missguided, which comes from their 'exclusive' range designed by the new in-house team.

It's rare to find a style that manages to still look a bit sexy and party-ready without resorting to a low-cut neckline. If you prefer your styles to be more buttoned-up, this gives you the look without the frump (and this kind of collar is very Victoria Beckham).

Add a peplum (well, why not? They're on every other dress this Autumn) and a short hemline, and this is the perfect style for those with a boyish or straight up and down figure - it'll draw attention to slim legs, create curves around the waist and add structure around the shoulders and arms.
