Sateen Bandeau Dress from Oasis


Wiggle dresses are a perennial go to for the sexier end of fifties styling, creating the bombshell silhouette that the decade is so known for with ease. For a dress that has all the vampish appeal without being too much for the daytime, this Sateen Bandeau Dress from Oasis is a great choice.

The dress has a definite fifties structure, with a kneelength hemline that's balanced by a sweetheart neckline and halter strap. The tailoring is spot on, with a high cinched waist and just enough hip-hugging to create a great hourglass. Finished in a sweet floral print, the colour palette has a sunny feel that just treads the line of wholesomeness.

It's available now from Oasis for £55.
