With the weekend approaching it’s time to think about what to wear to paint the town red: will you go for glitzy glamour or something more mysterious? Luckily, you don’t have to choose with this French Connection dress because they’ve cleverly combined the two.

FC’s gorgeous sugar candy dress is anything but sweet with its vampish jewelled neckline and embellished cuffs. Plus, the sheer sleeves steer the dress away from looking too much like a disco ball and keep you suitably on trend.

Worried that you can’t pull off a dress like this? Worry not – its simple and classic shape will flatter any frame and figure. Team with an understated, unfussy clutch bag and black platforms to finish; you won’t need jewellery, the dress shines for itself.

So dress to impress everyone from your other half to your girlfriends in this show-stopping shift – we can already hear those summer soirees calling.
