Daringly figure-hugging cuts and crisp white fabrics have become an instant marker of eighties dressing since vampish leading ladies like Sharon Stone set the mood of the power-dressing decade. This Collar Cap Sleeve Dress from French Connection taps into that high end style with ease, bring an ideal 80s-look evening dress.
The use of a suit style collar adds a touch of the power suit to the dress, just as fitting with the decade as the tuliped pencil skirt and bright white shade. The capped sleeve's structured cut hints at accented shoulders too, while the dress avoids showing too much cleavage for most occasions.
It's available now online from ASOS for £110.
