The piece: Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Flo stretch dress
The price: £940
Why we want it: If you have a lot of big events coming up in the next few months (especially weddings), you'll need a dress that can go the distance. Preen's yellow dress is a statement enough in itself, but the accessorising potential is huge, giving you the chance to create a completely new look for each outing. Team it with black or grey for city events, keep things subtle with silver flats and minimal jewellery, or add other pastel shades (try a floral clutch or lilac shoes) for a more romantic look. The stretch in the fabric will ensure it fits and stays comfy on long days, and the style is universally flattering for just about any body shape. Who needs 10 new dresses when one works for everything?
