Luxe to less – panel coloured dresses

When I saw the Derek Lam beaded cocktail dress (pictured above left) I knew it would be perfect for a cocktail function. If I ever had to opportunity to attend one and if I had £2,068.09 to spare. But the dress would be worth it. The knee length silk dress with its coloured panels and beaded bust adds a bit of grown up sophistication. The empire line is hot this season and the pleating will hide any body bumps you haven’t worked off at the gym.

Similar to the Derek Lam dress is TD by Tufi Duek blue x-back halter jersey dress (pictured above middle). At $159.99 it is a much cheaper option. With similar panel detail and empire line, the dress is definitely a little more casual and great for a day out with the girls.

Last but not least is this Colorblock dress from Gap (pictured above right). It a stunning shade of blue, this dress comes with a smocked empire waist and colorblock panels at neckline and hem. It’s definitely well worth the $59.50 that the Gap are selling it for.
