While little black dresses are always talked about as a must have wardrobe item, retro lovers know there's always room for more than one. This Knotted Dress by Karen Millen is a great forties/fifties style version that's perfect for all year round evening wear.
The retro look is created by the shape, with a pencil skirt offset by a daring neckline. A plunging v-neck sloping up to a wide collar-line creates a great vintage style bustline, accentuated by the knot detail in front. The stretch jersey fabric gives it a figure-hugging fit that's easy to wear and wash.
It's available online from ASOS for £165.
