Raf Simons at the helm of Jil Sander has a vision that is modern, clever and beautiful.

A powerful parade of full-length ballgown skirts in eye-popping tones of bubble gum pink, emerald and tangerine were simply combined with a plain white tee to open the show, while minimalistic shapes in bold stripes and block colours were to follow.

This floor-skimming stripe dress is a full-on statement piece. Combined confidently with sleeked back hair, a hot pink lip and black court heels, it brings the idea of a maxi dress to a whole other level.

It's ideal to opt for a high-street version of such an eye-catching piece because let's face it, you're not going to fade into the background when you're donning this little number.

This Penneys version is a very extravagant €25 (turn the page to see just how good it looks on one of our own). Go on, get gathering that loose change gals!
