Is a hot date on the cards? We thought we’d offer a little flash of inspiration for your date night… or day dress up.  We’ve handpicked some of the most stylish looks from Market Place stores and here’s the lowdown…



We have one person to thank for this ultimate outfit of seduction – the one and only, Coco Chanel.  And it’s as popular today as it was way back in the 1920s, when the legendary designer transformed what was a dress of mourning into the ultimate style staple. Versatile, unbeatably flattering, worn by some of the most stylish women to walk this earth and in the immortal words of Karl Lagerfeld, ‘You’re never over-dressed or under-dressed in a little black dress.’

Perfect for everything from a night of glamorous cocktails to a pint in the pub.


Dress: River Island, Bracelet: H&M, Bag: River Island



The midi is the perfect compromise between maxi and mini and you’ll find our stores brimming with options…  Select the right dress length and you can add centimetres to your silhouette height – as a rule, the taller you are, the lower you can get away with, but rules are there to be broken so make that midi work for you… Wear it in the day with a cool pair of flat boots or sneakers, or in the evening with a dressy pair of heels.


Dress: Zara, Earrings: Debenhams, Sandal: River Island



If you’re looking for effortless style, the shirt dress is a sure-fire hit… With lots of options from casual to dressy, you’re bound to find something to suit your personal style. We LOVE this little number from New Look. We’ve teamed it with contrasting accessories to create an innocently cheeky look.


Dress: New Look, Earrings: H&M, Shoe: River Island



Ok, not technically a dress, but we couldn’t resist this little two piece. It’s so current, with the added bonus of versatility – being able to mix and match each half with contrasting items to create a whole new look.


Skirt and Top: New Look, Necklace and Earrings: H&M, Jacket: River Island



Ok, ok! It’s defo no dress! But again we couldn’t resist! Perfect for those among us who don’t want to show off their pins but BOLD and equally as alluring as any of our dressy options…


Jump Suit: River Island, Coat: Zara, Sandal: Debenhams
