Rihanna and Dua Lipa are both fans of the cut-out fashion trend, which you can finally try this holiday through this Helmut Lang piece. Elegant and sexy at the same time, the dress is made from stretch nylon jersey that will wrap you figure perfectly, while its cutout reveals a flash of skin at the back. For jewellery, try a statement cuff on the sleeveless arm, or a pair of bold earrings in gold.
If Dua Lipa hasn’t convinced you that you need a shimmering slip dress in your wardrobe, this Off-White piece might change your mind. Made in a flattering gold hue, the dress offers some surprises with its asymmetric neckline and an Off-White logo near its hem.
Alexandre Vauthier shows off his haute couture training in this elegant minidress, which is fitted with pink organza flower on one side. The crepe fabric will stretch snugly around your body, while its strapless, sweetheart neckline means you can show off your favourite statement necklace.

Paco Rabanne’s metallic slip dress is not like the others. On the front, it’s lined with stud buttons that create a ruched effect, which is perfect for showing off your figure. The skirt also opens to a slit, which means you can show off your legs, too.
Flirty and fun, this ruffled Blumarine dress in Y2K pink will be perfect if you’re heading out for a date. Throw on a pair of sandals and bring your favourite glittering handbag to complete the look. Plus, get it for an additional 20% off on checkout at Farfetch.
Molly Goddard’s creations, loved by Rihanna and Blackpink’s Lisa, easily turn heads with their layers of airy tulle. Pair this dress with a pearl necklace and party tights to emphasise its sweetness, or follow Rosamund Pike and throw on combat boots to add some spunk.
