If a black dress is the sartorial equivalent of the daily coffee: practical, sharp and dark, then the statement dress would be the wardrobe counterpart of an iced hazelnut triple shot macchiato with cream and chocolate syrup.

The Alex Perry dress pictured above is like a gelato on a summer’s day: pastel hued, light and delicious.
Josh Goot has really played with proportions this season – I love this beautiful bustier, thigh split, long sash number. It’s modern and sexy at the same time.
This Dion Lee number is a sexy and intricate play with textures and lenghts.
