Black tie functions can be impossible to dress for. How do you manage to look stylish yet subtle enough to be seen as serious? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered, and since it’s Friday, this dress will double up on the dancefloor, too.

Dress Up Topshop’s contrast bow dress is perfect for posh functions and Friday nights alike. The little black cocktail dress is subtly sexy, whilst the fitted shape is smart enough to ensure you’ll sail through any summer soiree with the utmost sophistication.

And if you think that LBD’s are as boring as cereal every morning, take a look at the statement white bow. With detachable straps, it’s even multifunctional.

Team with sleek Le Smokin’ stilettos or chunky suede platforms for a playful twist, and add subtle sparkle in the form of simple studs. You’ll be your own Pretty Woman just yet.
