Assistant womenswear editor, Drapers

The second half of the Noughties will be well remembered as the time when fashion rediscovered the beauty of the dress. While the nineties were all about bootcut jeans and tailored blazers, there was a sudden flurry of excitement over the smock dress off the back of the boho explosion of 2005. Since then we have flitted between prom styles, maxi dresses, body con bandage frocks and structured shapes, revelling in the knowledge that there is a dress to suit every size, shape or dressing up whim. I actually started my own dress-dedicated blog this year off the back of the dress’ re-emergence, and I think it will continue to be a leading product category going into the Teenies.
