The New Look dress

Give the classic ’50s silhouette a contemporary update

  • The classic New Look Dress puts you in mind of old Hollywood, and with a few tweaks, is perfectly on trend too.

    For the day: To avoid looking like you’ve stepped out in last evening’s outfit, add some sporty elements to tone things down a notch. Then throw on a bomber jacket, high-top trainers (a major Spring/Summer 2014 trend) and a skinny belt to keep it casual.
