It's great to have a non-black party dress that can also be worn during the day. Great if you work and need to go from the office to a party and great if you want to be able to wear a going out suitable dress on the school run. I think this Marks & Spencer number ticks all those boxes so it was my first choice when I was asked to chose from Marks & Spencer's party dress range for this 1 dress, 3 ways challenge.

It's a lovely textured material in grey/black/cream tones with gold thread running through it but it was the pleather detail on the shoulders and waistband that won me over. A nod to a current trend and I think it's what makes this dress so good for day to night styling.
But first the working woman look. I've styled the dress with a black belt, cream silk shirt, a beaded necklace and ankle booties.
