Badgley Mischka embellished silk cocktail dress £180 (was £445) at Cocosa >>>

Badgley Mischka definitely decided to have a party in the back with this chic little cocktail dress. With a cardi or blazer over the top it could easily pass for a day dress, one of those useful little 2-in-1 styles that saves the hassle of matching separates (if you call tucking a shirt in 'a hassle'). But turn around, and the shoulder embellishment makes it something a little bit more special. I also like the tie neck, which can be moved up and down depending on how much flesh you want to show, and the soft draping in the top that makes it a great option if you're top-heavy.

The dress is in Cocosa's 'sumptuous silks' sale and won't hang around long given the reduction of over £250. Grab it now if you fancy something chic but special for the festive season.
