Trompe L'oiel has been taken to the extremes by Oasis this Winter. Rather than completely covering a party dress with cabouchon gems and beads, they've managed to produce a jewel print that looks, from far away, just like the real thing.

With this full skirted lantern dress you get all the glam factor without the bulk and weight, plus there's no fear of beads falling off - I've lost track of the amount of beaded or sequinned dresses I've seen missing beads before they've even left the store.

The print also means you lose the super-high price tag that always comes with heavy embellishment. The dress is a very reasonable £55
