An Italian brand with a flair for the dramatics, Giambattista Valli starts with simple silhouettes before building them up with a crescendo of ruffled layers - a design ethos that's perfectly demonstrated by this dress. Fashioned from pure silk, the fully-lined design balances tiered frills with a pleated skirt, making it feel light-as-air to wear. Anchor the flyaway look with heeled courts and a chunky cuff bracelet for an easy evening option.
