yay-or-nay-CKANE-dressNew year, new dress. You know the drill! But we’re not talking any old yawn-inducing number. No. Turn your attention to this eye-catching creation from British fashion genius, Christopher Kane.

Spring/summer 2014 was all about show-stopping numbers splashed in painterly designs, and Kane’s take on the season’s colour-crazed affair, with the elastic-panelled bandage dress (£1,100), is a tamed version for the more refined dress wearers among us.

The flattering fit, sexy, off-the-shoulder detail and striking effect of primary colours on a black background give this dress serious look-at-me appeal, but would you take the plunge and own it? Check out the reasons we’re saying yay and (very sensibly) nay to this Kane delight below…


Updated LBD: We’re always behind a spin on the classic LBD, and this dress offers the perfect excuse to flip the evening classic on its head for some fashion fun.

Flattering fit: The stretch-jersey fabric and bandage style of this dress make for a form-flattering silhouette. Perfect, if you’re planning to show off your curves Kim K style.

Great length: The knee-length cut makes it an ideal contender for the office – if you’re one of the lucky creative types with a fashion-forward boss, that is!


Trend-centric: Season in, season out, Kane’s dresses are the must-have piece (loop tape velvet dress, anyone?), so you’re guaranteed to find this dress on a legion of Kane’s fans.

Price: Sitting pretty at a hefty £1,100, your bank balance won’t be looking so smug post-purchase!

One-wear dress: Although the brights-against-black contrast is a winner, how many times can you (honestly) say you will make a repeat-wear with this number? If it’s destined for the one-wear-then-despair pile, steer clear. But, if you love bringing back seasonal big-hitters, shop away.

Christopher Kane elastic-panelled bandage dress, £1,100, available at Liberty.
