We figured the second most important thing to shop for, after shoes, is a dress (or maybe even two?). We love ‘separates’ as much as the next girl, but sometimes a dress is just the way to go. I don’t know about you, but when I go out I literally have half an hour (if I’m lucky!!) to get ready (and that’s including a shower!). I need to act fast, and for me, the fastest route to getting from the bedroom to the taxi is via a great dress. Just chuck it on and go. Literally. So here are our favourites to see you (and us) through the fast-approaching festive season. We have stuck to black (if you’re time-poor, go for black – this is not the time for recreating J.Crew-style colour blocking and print clashing…), but have tried to find a dress for every mama and every mama’s style. Be it short and sexy, long and lacy, pretty, cool, or even gothic-meets-Catherine Deneuve (number 8 – strictly only with flats though). There should be a dress for you.

ps: a few of these (numbers 3, 4 and possibly 5) will also double-up as great skirts when you add a jumper into the mix. So you can wear them more casually, and well into 2016…
pps: we probably don’t need to remind you that it’s Black Friday today do we??
