Demure and timeless, Valentino has elegant beauty down to a fine art. Tiered lace, pleated leather and floor-skimming florals swished down the catwalk for the AW11 collection.

A muted and flattering palette of midnight blue, blush and chocolate brown provided a cosy undertone to the oh-so-pretty looks.

This dress from River Island is a nifty alternative to the LBD. Trimmed with scalloped lace, it has a slight 1920s, flapper feel about it.

Layer with this sheer knit from Topshop, which has a gold, waist to neck zip running up the back. Then finish off with either these art deco inspired, T-strap heels from River Island to complete the vintage vibe or opt for a classic nude patent sling-back from Zara.

Partywear that'll pack a punch without the bling.
