Our favourite slip-on-and-go number just got a lot more structured. Gucci debuted a luxurious, sensual version that fused a wired bustier top with a velvet skirt for a look that is modest yet sultry, soft yet strong. Meanwhile, 3.1 Phillip Lim went the way of casual-cool by marrying a stiffer fabric with a tailored bustier and leather straps. Add statement footwear, throw on some understated accessories, and you’re all set.
