There’s a reason we love black so much – it’s versatile, flattering and always classic. And if this season’s block colours are a step too bold, what better way to indulge than with this flattering shoulder dress from ASOS.

If your workwear is feeling a bit flat, this ladylike piece will sharpen up your wardrobe a treat. With an A line skirt, it’ll suit any shape or size, working to emphasis curves and lengthen legs – just what we like to hear, right? – and it’s cap sleeves and on-trend pleated skirt are ultra flattering to boot.

This dress is just crying out to be worn with coordinating accessories in the super sweet Fifties style for which it was made, but it can also be toughened up with a leather jacket and boots for retro rockabilly ladies.

We love this dress as a base piece that can be worn as part of a timeless tailored wardrobe.
