Introducing the hottest dress of the season.

"The 'barely there' dress whether in cage style or in lace is a smart cocoon for a woman with curves," explains stylish Laura Mullett. "The material hugs the body so cinches at the empire line emphasising a small waist and supporting the lower stomach. It is a forgiving dress in many cases because it is essentially playing peek a boo provocatively.

"The look is carried off with confidence and the midi style exudes chic with the high waist undergarments.It's a celeb trend not for the faint hearted that continues to resurface."
