If you only had one minute to get ready for a dress to impress themed event, we think you’d make a beeline for this Emilio Pucci beaded collar silk dress that was sitting pretty in your wardrobe. That is, if you smartly chose to invest in it in the first place.

This is a decadent and glamorous approach to the classic LBD as it offers so much more than any standard little black dress would. It boasts a diamante and bead collar, cap sleeves, sheer buttoned panels at the chest, a gathered panel at the front and concealed zip fastening at the back. It pretty much speaks for itself, so you don’t need to overdo it on the accessories.

While a glamorous clutch bag, demure pair of pointy heels and a Kate Middleton style blowdry would be heartily encouraged, a simple bun and nude accessories wouldn’t be out of place either. After all, there’s no point having your tanned back on display if your hair is covering it, and there’s no point having an uber sparkly collar if it blends in with the rest of your glitzy accessories.

This dress is the very definition of a hero piece; take care of it and in turn it will take care of you and see you through event after event after event. Get it now ahead of the party season and never look back!
