This winter evening wear takes on a sleeker, sharper look. So leave your reliable, failsafe dress in the wardrobe this season and rock tough tailoring, set off with statement jewellery and neon-popping colour, like this silk vest from Helmut Lang. If you only buy one statement piece of jewellery make it a jewelled collar to wear with everything in your wardrobe, from cashmere cardigans to plunging necklines. This pearl version from Coast lends a feminine edge to Topshop's blazer and Uniqlo's smart skinnies. Finish with a futuristic box-clutch and fierce snake-effect gladiators from Oli.
