We know, another little black dress – but take a closer look. This Jaeger velvet column dress, part of the latest drop from its Boutique range, has a lovely little twist in its construction.

The draped effect leading from the shoulder will flatter your entire silhouette as it moves down (a clever touch from one of Britain’s best-loved brands) and, never one to scrimp on quality and cut, Jaeger’s LBD has got both of those nailed, too – we can almost feel the soft, luxurious fabric through our screens.

All it needs are elegant heels to complement the rust-coloured shoulder strap and slick of nude lipstick – think Julianne Moore in A Single Man and you can’t go far wrong.
