Nail two of next season's trends - lace and the ladylike wardrobe - with this elegant LBD. The hat-trick bonus? It's half price in the COS sale which started today, reduced from £99 to a more affordable £49.50.
Technically, the cotton-crochet fabric isn't lace, but with more than a passing resemblance it ensures you're right on trend for a/w 2010. And, as it's a lightweight cotton, it's perfect for now, too.
The semi-fitted shape of the dress gently skims the figure without clinging (think sophisticated rather than provocative) and the longer-length sleeves are modest yet summery. The scalloped-edge hem, meanwhile, gives extra dress inches, while discreetly revealing subtle flashes of skin thanks to the lining falling a fair bit shorter. In total, its demureness is the right side of sexy; not too revealing but hot nonetheless.
Its stylishness goes on. Suited to all manner of occasion, from smart officewear to lunch and dinner dates to cocktails and dancing, this will be the LBD you can't live without. So, snap it up quick before it sells out.
