The piece: Topshop Victoriana tea dress
The price: £50
Why we want it: The fussy high necklines of lacy Victorian-inspired pieces can be hard to pull off, but by adding a supershort hemline to this dress, Topshop has made the job a little easier. It gives an otherwise frumpy piece a playful spin, and it's a great alternative to a cleavage-revealing low-cut party dress. What's more, it's got enough of a gothic feel to see you through Halloween without buying a proper costume. Just add a crucifix, black liner, and plum lipstick, tease your hair '90s-style, and go as one of the girls from The Craft. Katy Perry would be proud.
