Style Dilemma: I need something stylish and elegant
Q I've been invited to attend a festival gala evening and I'm looking for something suitably stylish and elegant to wear (I've just turned 48). Your help would be greatly appreciated. Suzanna, Co Clare
Suzanna, you've not specified your budget so here are a couple of options at different price points.
If want to blow the budget, the red Alexander McQueen pencil dress -- 100pc wool, with trompe l'oeil fluted body -- is the epitome of elegance (€1,060, Brown Thomas).
More purse-friendly options are available elsewhere. For instance, try this Hoss Intropia dress with beautiful waist detail (€350, Arnotts), paired with Shuh's 'Polly' cap-toe heels (€90), and finish off the look with some gold accessories.
