dress-of-the-day-karen-millenToday's dress of the day comes from Karen Millen, AND comes in three colours!

With a shade to suit every skin tone, it's not surprising that this signature cotton dress is doing well, plus with a fitted pencil skirt and ruffled cinched peplum at the waist, it has universal retro appeal too. Cut from clean stretch cotton, you'll definitely need a pair of Spanx on underneath this baby to ensure those lines stay crisp (this is not a dress to hide a food baby in) although you can enhance (or create the illusion of) curves with the aid of the origami-inspired bow; with so many designers taking influence from the orient this season, the obi belt is a wise addition to an already fab piece. Well played KM, well played.

Completed with an exposed zip through in the back, simple v cut at the neckline and curved seam across the bust, this dress would make a great transition from work to play and would be a welcome fashion hit at any wedding this year.
