With Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain and Cavalli championing baroque glamour in their AW collections, it’s the look to rock after dark next season, and luckily, this little Dolce-alike has just landed at River Island. A timeless tulip LBD gets a on-trend update with glittering gold sequins which will look just as good with Grecian sandals if you’re yet to jet off on your summer holiday as it will toughened up catwalk style with black ankle boots.
