Softly does it for new season at Karen Millen

KAREN Millen has a reputation for high glamour, body-con dresses, sexy work clothes and seductive shoes and bags that other women covet.

But its spring summer collection marks a new departure, with a softer palette and lots of very 'relaxed' clothes, perfect for lazy weekends when you want to dress down but still feel stylish.

There's lots of ultra-feminine draping and good use of sporty fabrics and a soft palette of greys and nude for Saturday morning.

But for the evening, you can crank up the glamour quotient with a vintage-style beaded dress.

The tiny beads and crystals on the shoulder make the vintage-styled dress look authentic but the modern, deep V marks it as cutting-edge 2010. There are matching shoes but the two together would be a step too far.

A black jersey jumpsuit with cropped legs has just the right amount of playfulness.

Meanwhile, the jacket everyone is seeking out is made from black lace with double-layered cream lining (€250). The cuffs and hem feature a raw edge with tiny 'eyelash' details.
